Virtual Reality

Funding is awarded within the framework of production funding for television films and is intended to contribute the realization and market presentation of unique ideas for virtual reality concepts (with a focus on storytelling and experiences; no games), even without the participation of a television broadcaster.

Applications must include a cost-effective concept which contains indication of the planned business model, the scope of application, and a revenue forecast. 

Funding Amounts and Bavaria Effect

For the production of innovative web series and virtual reality formats, funding of up to 60% of the production costs may be awarded. The maximum project funding amount is 50,000 euros. An Awards Committee decides on the level of funding within this framework. The awarded funding amount must be spent in its entirety in Bavaria. Funding is granted in the form of a conditionally repayable loan.
