Belgian media fund Motion Investment Group (MIG) raised $21.4m (Euros $16.5m) for 18 films in 2006, making it the country's biggest source of film finance.

The company's end-of-year report shows MIG backed 13 features, four television productions and a documentary.

Added to its foundation year of 2005, the company has now raised a total of $28m through the Belgian tax shelter scheme, which was established in 2004.

MIG was set up following the 2004 creation of tax shelter legislation by the Belgian government.

The 2006 slate included Robert Young's Eichmann, Eric Zonca's Julia, animation Max & Co and the forthcoming Niki Caro film.
