Organisation

Filmförderung Hamburg Schleswig-Holstein supports cinema films and exceptional TV productions of all genres. It provides financial support for all phases of film projects, from the first script drafts through production to sales, distribution and festival presentations. Deciding criteria for financial support include the quality of content and a positive financial effect for the region. The latter can include making use of Hamburg and Schleswig-Holstein as shooting locations or employing local film professionals and film-technical businesses.

Struktur

The partners behind FFHSH are the Free and Hanseatic City of Hamburg and the Federal State of Schleswig-Holstein. Filmförderung Hamburg Schleswig-Holstein has c. 12,8 m euros p.a. at its disposal (including operative costs). 8.1 m euros are means issued by the Free and Hanseatic City of Hamburg, the TV broadcasting company NDR supplies 1.2 m euros, ZDF supplies 1 m euros, and a further 2.5 m euros are taken from a contingent of radio license fees as determined by the Legislature. This sum includes 300,000 euros for Filmwerkstatt Kiel, as well as 450,000 euros for NDR commissions and co-productions, which continue to be granted in accordance with former MSH regulations to strengthen Schleswig-Holstein as a film and TV location. Two committees consisting of experienced industry experts decide on the allocation of the means: Committee 1 decides on films with production costs of more than 800,000 euros, Committee 2 decides on projects with a budget less than this.
