Screenplay Funding

For feature-length theatrical films, FFF Bayern supports the preparation and development of screenplays. Authors and producers are eligible to file applications (provided they are the creators of the story or are in possession of the film rights to the story). The standard funding sum for one or more authors is 30,000 euros. For the development of treatments for complex documentary feature films, the standard funding sum is 10,000 euros.


General Application Information

Applications must include a treatment, fully elaborate shot sequences with dialogues, as well as (if the screenwriter is the applicant) a letter of intent from a Bavarian-based producer. The treatment must include the entire storyline of the planned screenplay and should not exceed 20 pages in length.

Applications for screenplay funding may be submitted for all five of the FFF Allocation Committee meetings throughout the year (for details, please see Deadlines).

Before submitting your application, please contact the respective funding executive.
