splash I reached out to Gallery Distribuidora, which is responsible for the films, to understand how the features were produced.

According to the press office, “the films were 100% produced with private investments without the use of public funds.” There was also no corporate sponsorship.

It was created in 1991, during the government of Fernando Collor, and The Rowan Act provides tax incentives to individuals and private companies that sponsor cultural products or services. However, approval by the Ministry of Culture does not guarantee the capture or implementation of the project, which is the responsibility of the proponents.

Funds are raised via tax credit. In other words, it is a tax reorganization, paid to the public coffers, but directed towards artistic production. For individuals, the deduction limit is 6% of the income tax payable; For legal entities 4%.

Companies choose the projects they want to invest in, not the government.
