  • As most of you know my name is Stephanie and I work for the MFG Film Funding in Stuttgart. Which is in located in Baden-Württemberg. I mention that because Germany has 16 federal states.
  • And 8 local fundings as you will se in this slide.
  • Our fundingssectors are… and the DCF is somewhere hanging in between. Depends on if you are in the stage of developing or prototyping or further
  • First I want you to introduce you to our probably best project. Which reached the highest success this year. The Best german Game in 2014. It was developed in one of Ingas classes. So you can be sure that there is a story bible and all that. When they first came to my office and explain that they wanna start a company this was for all of us a big thing.
  • The
  • So the created two apps one which guides you through the Cathedrale in Strassbourg and enhance your experience with the videos another gameapp to build the second tower
  • project-based selective funding
    certain deadlines for most of the funding sectors
    funding regulations, application form and information sheets on our website
    project counseling prior to application
    application prior to principal shooting or start of project
    handling and auditing fee for some of the funding sectors
    regional economic effects
  • You are obligated to speak with us at first we are the first customers
    Don´t adapt your project to much for the MFG objective. You will loose something. To be a bit more precise we will help you through.

    Consider the jury members
    They read your stuff on their own. And if they wouldn´t get your story even if their technical or structure properties are difficult to understand – you should try to captivite their attention.

    And if there are interest they will read everything of your project they want to go deeper into your world.
