SOFT MONEY INCENTIVES
The German Federal Film Fund (DFFF) contributes annually with EUR 75 million to stimulate production activities in the film industry. International co-producers can apply for a rebate of up to 25% for their spend on the ground.
In addition, a number of regional film funds provide efficient support to productions of any budget. Many German states grant funds and additional soft money depending on the regional spend.
