Filmfonds Wien

The VIENNA FILM FUND is Austria’s largest regional film fund. Its mission is to strengthen and to consolidate Vienna as a city of international film and television production and to contribute to Europe’s cultural diversity. The City of Vienna provides the fund’s annual budget of 11.5 million EURO. The VIENNA FILM FUND supports project development, film and television production and distribution as well as running a support scheme for cinema exhibitors.

The Fund supports feature-length projects with soft loans. We do not fund shorts. An independent jury awards grants for development and production based on the project’s cultural, economic and artistic merit. The VIENNA FILM FUND requests a regional effect of 100% of its support to be spent on local talent, creative staff and production facilities. Ideally, when funding a co-production it should be shot in Vienna or based on local content. Alternatively, projects with a very strong regional effect can also come into consideration.
