German Films' new "Distribution Support" funding program came into effect on 3 May 2005. The funding is intended for the financing of additional measures to supplement the release campaign which had already been planned by the foreign distributors. A maximum of Euros 50.000 can be applied for per film and country. The funding is awarded in the form of a conditionally repayable loan; funding of up Euros 10.000 can also be allocated as a grant.
The guidelines and application form for "Distribution Support" are available from German Films and can also be downloaded from www.german-films.de/support
