The  DW Akademie Film Development Fund  has been designed to support filmmakers from the Global South who are passionate about making films and want to build sustainable careers.  

We want to support creatives in developing film projects who may otherwise struggle to get their voices heard and their stories told and thus contribute to social change and freedom of expression. 

We offer filmmakers a combination of financial support (maximum 10,000€) for the development of projects up to production stage and a tailor-made training program.

This year, the DW Akademie Film Development Fund starts first with calls for applications in EthiopiaTanzania and Uganda.
