German Films offers financial subtitling and marketing support to German producers and world sales agents for German films and co-productions screening at international film festivals. The amount of support varies according to the festival and section to which the film has been invited.
Applications for subtitling and marketing support, as well as for many other German Films activities and projects (i.e. German Films Quarterly, Distribution Support, etc), require the submission of a German BAFA project certification ("BAFA Bescheinigung") or preliminary project certification ("Vorläufige Projektbescheinigung"). Further information may be obtained from the Bundesamt für Wirtschaft und Ausfuhrkontrolle (BAFA - Federal Ministry for Economics and Exports).

German Films offers travel support to German directors for the presentation of their films at international film festivals. Supports are granted if the festival is of relevance for the respective territory and if beyond local press press coverage is given.
Additionally, German producers who have produced min. 1 and max. 3 feature films for theatrical release can apply for travel support to international co-production markets and pitching events. This requires that a new project by the producer has been invited to the respective event.
For further information on requirements of travel support, please check the regulations.
