FAQ Directory

The Directory is used as a networking tool between film professionals and production companies: It provides a platform where productions that come to shoot in South Tyrol can find film professionals quickly and easily. The fees paid to locally hired film professionals who are accredited and registered in the industry directory are recognized within South Tyrol’s production funding program as contributing to the film’s “South Tyrol Effect” – that is, they qualify as a “Local Spend.”
Film Professionals: In order to be listed in the IDM Directory, you must be a film professional who was either born in South Tyrol or whose principal residence is located here.

Companies: Companies may be listed in the IDM Directory if they active in the audiovisual sector and/or offer services for the audiovisual sector. They must also have an office in South Tyrol and therefore be listed in the relevant registry at the Bolzano Chamber of Commerce.

Regardless of their current place of residence, graduates of the ZeLIG School for Documentary, Television and New Media (starting with the 2007-2010 training cycle) may be listed in the IDM Directory and are recognized as South Tyrol Effect.

We ask those who would like to be listed in the IDM Directory or who would like to work in the audiovisual sector but who have no specialized training and experience to contact us for a personal interview before registering.

Background players are not listed in the directory, but we would be happy to put you in touch with local casting offices.

Those who are not born in or residents of South Tyrol and persons who have only a second residence in South Tyrol may not be listed in the directory. For individual inquiries and more, we are happy to help you.
Once you have been listed in the directory, we usually request that film professionals provide a residence certificate. When your profile is complete and a residence certificate exists, your profile is enabled in the online database and is thus visible online in the IDM Directory.

With your personal login, you can always log into your profile and make changes. IDM must approve all changes. Please keep your profile as up to date as possible. If your profile is not updated over years, even after repeated requests, we reserve the right to disable it in mutual interest. Please contact us if you would like your profile to be published again.
Unfortunately being listed in the IDM Directory does not guarantee that you will receive job offers. However, having your profile appear in this online platform for film professionals gives you visibility and credibility, and confirms that you are recognized as a Local Spend. We also recommend that you maintain a personal network and proactively apply for upcoming film projects. You should also regularly visit the IDM FilmJobs platform, which provides information about current job opportunities in the film industry.
