BERLIN WORLD CINEMA FUND: FUNDING FOR FEATURE LENGTH DOCUMENTARIES WITH STRONG CULTURAL IDENTITY

In co-operation with the German Federal Cultural Foundation (Kulturstiftung des Bundes) the Berlin International Film Festival has set up the World Cinema Fund to support filmmakers from transition countries.

The aim of the World Cinema Fund is to help the realisation of films which otherwise could not be produced, i.e. feature films and creative feature-length documentaries with a strong cultural identity. Another important goal is to strengthen the profile of these films in German cinemas.

The World Cinema Fund has an annual budget of about 500,000 Euros at its disposal and provides support in the fields of production and distribution. The maximum amount which can be granted to a film for production is 100,000 Euros. In order to receive such funds, a German partner is required. However, the film does not necessarily have to be a co-production.

Deadline for production funding: March 13th 2008
