Television Funding

FFF supports the production of television films and series as well as web series and virtual reality projects.

The production of television films may be funded with up to 30% of the eligible production costs; the maximum funding amount is 600,000 euros. Funding is granted in the form of a conditionally repayable loan. Prerequisite for the application is proof of financial contribution by one or more television broadcasters, which should, as a general rule, amount to 60% of the production costs. Producers based in or with branch offices in Germany are eligible to file applications for funding.

Bavaria Effect

At least 150% of the loan amount granted must be spent in Bavaria. A higher “Bavaria Effect” must actually be produced if such in indicated in the funding application.
