Web Series

With the opening up of television funding for innovative web series (fictional, documentary, experimental online content), producers and filmmakers are offered the possibility to explore new horizons while maintaining exceptional quality.

Information on Submitting Applications

Formats of all genres are eligible. Ideas for new formats should be conceived for long-term and at least weekly publication on an online platform, including successfully established video platforms, VOD and SVOD platforms, and/or internet-based broadcaster platforms.

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.
