IDM Film Fund

Funds available in the South Tyrolean film fund

IDM supports both cinema and television projects with a total funding budget of 5 million euros a year. Film producers can apply for funding regardless of where they are based. IDM advises and supports production companies throughout the funding process – from the initial consultation and submission of the application to the approval of the grant, project progress monitoring and payment of the funds. Applications should be submitted using the standardised online application portal.

IDM arranges for a committee of experts to evaluate the projects on the basis of cultural, content and profitability criteria, before making recommendations about which productions the provincial government of South Tyrol should fund. During this process, we place particular emphasis on the investments which the production companies are planning to make in South Tyrol to help raise the region’s profile as a film location.
