Nova Scotia is more than doubling its film fund cap in hopes of making it easier for larger productions to shoot movies in the province.

The province said Tuesday in a news release it has increased the cap to $10 million from $4 million, effective immediately.

The government also announced it will invest an extra $16.4 million in the Nova Scotia Film and Television Production Incentive Fund above the annual budget of $25 million, bringing the fund's total to $41.4 million for 2022-23.

So far, 75 film fund applications have been approved for 2022 to 2023.

Applicants can apply for a grant of between 25 and 32 per cent of their eligible Nova Scotia costs.
