Subsidies are awarded for additional measures over and above the release campaign which had already been planned by the foreign distributors. The support up to a maximum of 50,000 Euros is allocatd in the form of a conditionally repayable loan. Funding of up to 10,000 Euros can also be allocated as a grant.
