Funding Overview and Criteria


Overview
The NFVF provides film and video-related funding 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. Individuals, companies and organisations may submit funding applications to the NFVF in any of these four funding categories. Specific conditions are applicable in each funding category, and it is important for applicants to take careful note of these conditions before submitting an application.

The NFVF will accept proposals for film funding throughout the year. In each category of funding, only one application per organisation, individual or company will be considered. Funding may take the form of a grant, investment or loan. 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.
 

Criteria
The NFVF Council makes the final decision on projects that qualify for funding as mandated by the NFVF Act. While each category of funding has its own specific criteria, the ultimate goal is to ensure that filmmakers from emerging to experienced benefit equitably from NFVF funding and programmes.
