German Films' new Distribution Support program came into effect with the constituent sitting of the funding committee on 3 May 2005. The support is intended to help finance measures in addition to those release campaigns already planned by the foreign distributors. A maximum of Euros 50.000 per film and country can be applied for. The support is allocated in the form of a conditionally repayable loan. Funding amounts up to Euros 10.000 can also be awarded as a subsidy.
The guidelines and the application form for the Distribution Support are available from German Films or can be downloaded from www.german-films.de/support
