Eligible filmmakers can submit their documentary project in one of two categories:

  • Project development support (maximum contribution €7,500 per project)
  • Production & post-production support (maximum contribution €25,000 per project)

In addition to financing, the Fund will provide tailor-made support in areas such as creative process, strategy and networking, and safety and security, based on the specific needs of each project, in conversation with the filmmaking teams. All selected director-producer teams will be invited to attend IDFA 2022.

With this call, the Fund aims to support 6 to 8 projects. A separate selection committee will meet at the beginning of September to evaluate all applications and make the final selection. Application deadline: August 1, 2022.
