The "Distribution Support" funding program has existed since 2005 and supports the theatrical release of German films abroad. 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 allocated in the form of a conditionally repayable loan. Funding of up to 10.000 Euros can also be allocated as a grant.

The guidelines and the application form for "Distribution Support" can be downloaded here.
