You can now apply to Amarte Fonds Literature (deadline September 30th)!

film

Filmmakers can apply for a development grant (writing grant) or a project grant. Here you will find what these grants mean and what the application consists of. Please also take a look here, because on top of a financial contribution you can also receive extra professional support from an expert.

Applications

Development contribution / writing grant (max. €1.500)

Writers/ directors / (creative) producers can apply for a grant to develop feature films or long documentaries. For a development grant application it is important to introduce yourself as a creative. You may not have a concrete film plan yet, but it is important to share what you are planning to work on in this period.

Your application includes:
  • Filled out form (mandatory)
  • Budget plan (mandatory)
  • Links to relevant previous work
  • A basic idea for a film in the form of a synopsis / treatment or documentary plan.

Project grant (max €5.000)

It is also possible to submit an application for the realization or production of a short film or documentary. You can apply for a project grant with a maximum of €5.000.
Please note: Amarte’s budget is not sufficient to cover a substantial amount for the production of feature-length films or documentaries.

Your application includes:
  • Filled out form (mandatory)
  • Budget plan (mandatory)
  • Links to relevant previous work
  • A comprehensive film plan (logline, synopsis, moodboard etc.)
  • A realistic production plan

Amarte mainly supports the above mentioned film categories. But we are happy to be surprised! In case you have another idea that would fit the film category, you are welcome to submit an application. Please keep in mind that Amarte’s contribution is typically around €3.000 and that this amount should cover a substantial part of the production budget.

Your application will be reviewed by the advisory committee Film. In case your application does not fully fit the film category, for example because it is a cross-disciplinary project, we make sure that your application is also read by the other relevant advisory committees.

Review

Your application will be reviewed by the advisory committee Film. The most important factors they pay attention to are:

  • ‘Creative urge’: Why do you think and feel this project should be created?
  • Talent development: why is it important to you as an artist to develop this project?
  • Artistic quality
  • Financial and practical feasibility
