Funding application Script and treatment development for full-length children's films Approval

As an author of a children's film, you can apply for federal film funding to create a script or treatment. The funding is awarded as part of the cooperation between the Federal Government Commissioner for Culture and the Media (BKM) and the Board of Trustees for Young German Film.

The project must not have started at the time of application.

Children's films are such feature, documentary and animated films that are aimed at children up to the age of 12 in particular due to their themes, attitude and design and are suitable for this group of people.

Funding can be provided

  • the creation of a German-language treatment of an original material for a full-length children's film (at least 59 minutes) or
  • the development of a German-language script of artistic quality for a full-length children's film (at least 59 minutes).

You can receive funding as a grant up to the following amount:

  • for treatments: maximum EUR 8,000
  • for scripts: maximum EUR 30,000, in a few special exceptional cases up to EUR 50,000.

Your project can also be funded in several funding stages in a row, for example first the script, then the production.
