Support for attending festivals

With financial means of German Films the AG Kurzfilm subsidizes the travel expenses of filmmakers, the short film of whom has been invited in the competition section of a festival abroad. If a festival requires an additional DCP or subtitles, it is also possible to apply for support. The guidelines explain all details regarding conditions and required documents. Please complete the PDF application (save as writeable!).

Unfortunately, the support does only extend to short films with a German production majority. It is mandatory to send in your application before you make any bookings or place any orders.
