Funding Overview and Criteria

Our funding is designed to drive the equitable growth of the industry by increasing the number of local films made and film makers trained then ensuring that both the films and film-makers are well positioned and promoted globally.


Video and film funding is available in the broad categories of Education and Training; Development (of feature films, documentaries, and TV concepts); Production (of feature films and documentaries), and Marketing and Distribution. It may take the form of a grant, investment, or loan open to all individuals, companies, and organisations throughout the year. 

In each category, only one application per organisation, individual, or company will be considered. 

In addition to financial assistance, support mechanisms will be made available once funding is approved. Funding allocation to selected projects will vary according to the specific cash flow needs of the project.
