SRFOND, Norwegian South Film Fund Norway (Norvge)

Fictions & Documentaries

The new Norwegian film fund SRFOND, financed by the Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and managed by the
Norwegian Film Institute, will contribute to the completion of films from Southern countries. Following a large and positive
interest among international filmmakers, SRFOND has, in its first ever funding-round, awarded NOK 4 million (around
530,000) to seven different projects.
Strengthening freedom of expression
Following an initiative by the Films from the South Foundation, SRFOND was established in 2010. The fund aims to
support film production in countries where such production is limited by political, economic or social causes. The fund will
help to strengthen film as a mean for cultural expression, promote diversity and artistic integrity on the international film
stage. A unique feature of SRFOND in comparison with other similar European funds is that it focuses in priority on
freedom of expression while assessing the applications.
International networking
The first round of applications confirmed that there is great interest from Norwegian producers and film professionals to
create contacts outside Europe and North America. The hope is that new international contacts can contribute to an
increased internationalization of Norwegian producers, and provide inspiration for new ways to tell local stories.
The guidelines apply to grants for the production of films with a main producer based in a country on the OECD's current
list of countries and territories eligible to receive assistance (DAC-list), and a minority producer established in Norway.
The application has to concern a film with the main producer established in a country on the DAC-list. In addition, the
director must have citizenship from, or be resident in, a country on the DAC-list. The film must, for the most part, be shot
in a country on the DAC-list. In exceptional cases, derogations may be made regarding the establishment of the main
producer in a country on the DAC-list, if, due to political reasons, the film cannot be produced in such a country.
Deadline for application is February 27, 2013. The Norwegian minority producer is responsible for sending the
application to SRFOND.

fund and produce their own stories.
Create a credible and sustainable film financing model
Develop training opportunities to strengthen the film industry work force
Foster networking opportunities between talent from the MENA countries and the international film community
Annually, DFI will hold two grant submission cycles (Spring and Fall Grants) to support Arab projects across all genres for

What form does funding take?
Funding may take the form of a grant, investment or loan depending on the type of application and project. In addition to
financial assistance, other forms of support will be made available once the NFVF has established appropriate support
mechanisms. Funding allocation to selected projects will vary according to the specific cash flow needs of the project.
Development Funding
Foundation will consider contributing development funding to projects in the following categories: Feature-length and
short films, Documentaries, Animation and Multimedia.
The Foundation considers development funding as an investment and will set in place mechanisms to recoup all of its
development expenditure with interest on principal photography when the project enters the production phase. If a project

video productions, Animation, Multimedia projects that have an audiovisual component
Who can apply ?
South African-owned production companies that have reasonable experience may apply for production funding in any of
the above-mentioned genres.

industry, may apply for production funding in only two genres: short films and documentaries. However, in order to qualify,
the filmmakers or writers should have a production company attached.

With support from the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation (SDC) of the Swiss Foreign Ministry, for the last
eight years the Open Doors section has worked to highlight filmmakers and films from countries whose cinema is still
developing, and is committed to enabling them to find coproduction partners for their new projects.
This initiative, focusing on a different region every year, operates in two modes. Open Doors co-production lab brings
professionals from the chosen region together with potential partners, mostly from Europe, to foster support for projects
that would otherwise be difficult to make. Every year, following a call for submissions, the Festival selects a dozen new
projects from the chosen region. At the end of the workshop, the winning projects receive either development or
production support. For the public audience, the Open Doors Screenings present a selection of key films from the national
cinemas of the chosen region.
Since its inception, Open Doors has showcased projects from Cuba and Argentina, countries in the Mekong, the
Maghreb, South-East Asia (Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore, Thailand), the Near and Middle East (Mashrek), Latin
America, Greater China, central Asia and India. The last edition (2012) focused on Subsaharan francophone Africa.
Entry Conditions
- Either the production or the director of the project submitted for the selection must be from the chosen country.
- Projects participating in the selection, features, documentaries and animations must be presented in form of
treatment or script, with dossier or production plan. Dossiers must be either in English or in French.
Official Prizes and Jury

Doors initiative, will be allocated by a jury composed of representatives of the Festival and "visions sud est", a Swiss
production support fund. Continuing its collaboration with Open Doors, the CNC (Centre national du cinma et de limage
anime, France) also offers a grant of 7,000 Euros to support a film in development. The 2010 edition marked the
inauguration of the new International Relations ARTE Prize, worth 6,000 Euros, a collaboration that will continue in 2012.

Visions Sud Est Swizerland (Suisse)

Fictions & Documentaries

The Swiss fund Visions Sud Est was initiated by the Foundation trigon-film Baden and the Fribourg Film Festival, with the
collaboration of Nyons Visions du Reel and the support of the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation. It
supports film productions from Asia, Africa, Latin America and Eastern Europe, aims at making them visible worldwide
and guarantees their distribution in Switzerland.
Who can apply ?
All the projects for which financial support is requested must be proposed exclusively by a company based in a country
from the South (Africa, Latin America and Asia) or from Eastern Europe (excluding EU members) and regularly producing
films by filmmakers in these countries.
Therefore, the main part of the project must be shot in these countries and - except in special circumstances - in the local
or regional language.
Modalities and counterparts
Visions sud est is a partner of the Open Doors Factory programme of Locarno International Film Festival. Applicants may
submit their projects to visions sud est as well as to Open Doors. Support by one of these organisations, however,
excludes support from the other one.
A project application cannot be considered a second time in the same application category if it has been unsuccessful in
a previous application round. Furthermore, a project can only obtain a support by visions sud est once. This means that if
it has already been granted production support by visions sud est, an application for post-production support for the same
project will not be considered.
On all material of promotion and among the opening and closing credits of the film the following must appear : The logo of
the fund, followed by the text "with the support of the SDC (Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation)" as well as
references to (and logos of) public or private institutions which have contributed to the co-financing of the work.
They must be mentioned as financial partners of the project.
Type of assistance
