Filmförderung MFG Baden-Württemberg
MFG Baden-Württemberg is the centre of excellence for IT, media, and film of the federal state Baden-Württemberg, in Germany's southwest.
Since October 1995, the MFG programme supports culturally significant film projects to advance the local film industry in southwest Germany.
With an annual business volume of 15 million euros and more than 60 highly qualified employees in our headquarter, in Stuttgart, we promote Baden-Württemberg as a premier location for the creative industries.
MFG Baden-Württemberg consists of three divisions: MFG Agency for IT and Media, MFG Foundation and MFG Film Funding.
MFG Film Funding budget will be spent on scriptwriting, pre-production, production, incentive funding, TV and Video projects, post-production, digital content and distribution as well as on the support of cinemas in Southwest.
Beside supporting grand format documentaries, animated films, European co-productions and films for children, the MFG focuses especially on local young talents and their debuts in order to continuously strengthen the Southwest as an attractive location for film and media.
