The Canada Media Fund (CMF) and Medienboard Berlin-Brandenburg (MBB), the body responsible for film funding and media business development in the German states of Berlin and Brandenburg, have reopened their incentives for the co-development and co-production of digital media projects between Canadian producers and German producers based in Berlin-Brandenburg.
Now in its fourth year, the Canada-Germany Digital Media Incentive’s budget is set at CAD$450,000, with each funding organization contributing half of the funds. The total maximum contribution for each project funded through the incentive is CAD$300,000.
To qualify, projects must involve producers eligible under both organizations’ criteria. Projects will have to be created for digital platforms and can be either a game, a web series, multiplatform content, augmented reality, or virtual reality experiences.
Since the Canada-Germany Digital Media Incentive was launched in 2017, nine interactive digital media projects have received over CAD$1.2M in funding.
All applications must comply with the guidelines for the Incentive which are available on both the CMF and MBB websites. Click here to access the guidelines. The deadline to apply is September 1, 2020.
