NEW FUND FOR CHILDREN’S FILMS FROM MITTELDEUTSCHE MEDIENFÖRDERUNG & NETHERLANDS FILM FUND
The MDM Mitteldeutsche Medienförderung and the Netherlands Film Fund have established a co-development fund to jointly support script development for original children’s film projects. Children’s films have always played a major role within the policy of both funds. By joining forces, the funds aim to develop and co-produce high quality stories for children that will find their audience in both countries and beyond. The initiative also reinforces the recently signed co-production treaty between Germany and the Netherlands in order to enhance the collaboration and co-production between the two countries. The initial budget of the fund amounts up to 100,000 euros. Proposals for original, live action feature films for children in the age groups 4-6, 6-9 and 9-12 years old are eligible. Priority will be given to projects that already have a co-producer or co-writer attached from Germany respectively the Netherlands. Applications should originate from the Netherlands or the Central Germany region.
