In its endeavor to develop new sectors of activity within the creative arts industry, the Government of Mauritius has introduced the Film Rebate Scheme*.

The scheme allows refund on all the Qualifying Production Expenditures (QPPE) incurred by a film producer in respect of his/her project in Mauritius. Beside feature film, the Film Rebate Scheme applies to other category of production such as commercials, TV series/programmes and documentary programmes.

In line with this programme, the Mon Trésor smart city development on the island will include the development of Studio Babelsberg, which will offer world-class production facilities and services to international filmmakers and film and television producers.

Studio Babelsberg – Mon Trésor Mauritius

In Phase 1 of this development, the old Mon Trésor & Mon desert sugar factory is to be transformed into the Babelsberg Studio Headquarters and ancillary offices.

Mon Trésor Mauritius

Mon Trésor is a smart, sustainable coastal town spanning today’s and tomorrow’s aspirations. Its exclusive edge is a splendid seafront. Blending in seamlessly with nature, the modern town offers, in its initial phase, residential properties, parks, a cycling and pedestrian network; a commercial centre, sports complex; beach house and business park.

Medical and education facilities and senior citizen housing will follow. Reconciling eco-responsibility and contemporary urbanism, Mon Trésor promises an easy-going, lively and fulfilling lifestyle.
