More Than Honey: The Many Dimensions of Film Funding

The relation between filmmakers and film funds has more dimensions than just the pure business deal between the party granting financial support and the fund recipient trying to get a film made. As creative partners in the filmmaking process, funders create and foster lasting relationships with filmmakers in a climate of mutual trust and respect. Major representatives of Mexican Film Institute, BFI Film Fund, Filmförderung Hamburg Schleswig-Holstein and the Israel Film Fund share with producer Henning Kamm their personal understandings of the role of a fund and funder. Get a deeper understanding on how to connect with film funds, as the panelists share insights into strategies and visions for the film business today and in the future.
