Swiss citizens will vote on May 15 on a proposed amendment to the federal legislation on culture and film production, which would oblige streaming platforms to invest up to 4% of their revenue from Switzerland in Swiss films and TV series. This would bring in an extra CHF18 million for local film production, according to government estimates.
The initiators of the referendum are youth wings of Switzerland's centre right and rightwing parties. They believe that Swiss film production is already adequately supported and that it does not need any further aid from private business. What do you think? We would like to know your opinion!
