Before the actual production phase, producers can apply for project development funding for both theatrical and television films and series. The grant is awarded as a conditionally repayable, interest-free loan. It can amount to up to 70% of the calculated project development costs. The maximum rate for theatrical and television films is 100,000 euros. The maximum rate for series is 150,000 euros. If production funding is granted for the project, the loan is credited against this amount. Producers with a registered office, branch office or place of business in Germany are eligible to apply.
The amount of the subsidy should be used as far as possible in Bavaria. The Bavaria effect specified by the producer in the application must at least be achieved and, in the case of a funding recommendation, will become part of the loan agreement.
Processing of Funding Recommendations
All documents for further funding processing in the case of a funding recommendation (e.g. contracts, revenue statements) must also be submitted exclusively via the online application portal.
