Variety Gives Us The Breaks On Czech Film Tax

There's a little eye-opener in Variety today, all about Czech state-funded films. Thought you might find it interesting, and certainly somewhat different to all of the Spider-Man 3 business of the last week or two.

Variety are now hyperlinking all of their 'slanguage', so click on any underlined words that you don't understand for a definition. The newest bit of film lingo I caught - though not yet from Variety - was the idea that a film might get "Tidelanded", ie; inexplicably and unfairly denied any kind of meaningful release.

I knew I shouldn't laugh - but the only other option was to cry.
