DW Akademie Film Development Fund 2022 for Filmmakers – 10,000 Euros for 5 Winners

DW Akademie Film Development Fund 2022 for Filmmakers

The DW Akademie Film Development Fund has been designed to support filmmakers from the Global South who are passionate about storytelling and want to build their careers.

We are looking for filmmakers from Uganda or Tanzania who have already made one or more films and would now like support in developing their next project!

We offer a comprehensive, year-long program that includes financial support, professional mentoring and training.

Two independent juries will award five filmmakers (director or writer) per country to receive up to 10,000 Euros to contribute to the development of their film project.

Eligibility

Filmmakers (directors/scriptwriters) who are based in Tanzania or Uganda and have worked in a professional context on at least one fictional or non-fictional production are eligible to apply. The film needs to have been released either locally or internationally (e.g., theatrical release, screening in a national or international festival, TV broadcast, digital third-party broadcast, streaming/VOD).

Please note that you must be a Ugandan or Tanzanian citizen to apply. Filmmakers from the diaspora are not eligible.

Eligible formats are fictional and non-fictional feature-length films (at least 60 minutes) currently in development.

The fund focuses on the development stage of a film’s overall production. This is the phase for creating ideas, writing screenplays, acquiring financing, contracting rights etc.

Development activities eligible for funding include, but are not limited to: work on your screenplay, research (travel), production of a mood reel, participation in labs (lab and travel fees), acquiring financing for production (work on further funding applications, travel to festivals, etc), location and/or character/protagonist scouting, etc.

If you are unsure whether your planned activities are eligible for funding, please contact DW Akademie: [email protected]

An information meeting for all interested applicants will take place shortly after the call for applications and will be repeated shortly before the application deadline. We will inform you about the time and place of the meeting on this website.
