Krakow Regional Film Fund
The Krakow Regional Film Fund has been operated by the specialised chamber of the Krakow Film Commission, and within the structure of the Krakow Festival Office, since 2008. The aim of the Fund is to give financial support to film productions connected with the Krakow and Lesser Malopolska Region and thereby to contribute to tourist and economic promotion of the region, as well as contribute to building a positive image.
The Krakow Regional Film Fund is financed by the Malopolska Region and the the city of Krakow. Once a year producers can apply for financial support of feature and documentary films. Experts asses the applications submitted to the fund and take note of the location of the shoot and subject of the film, as well as the acting cast participating in the project. The Krakow Regional Film Fund also offers services to the Krakow Film Commission in the scope of organising film productions.
The Krakow Film Commission has a wide scope of activities; among others are encouraging domestic and international co-productions, membership in the Polish Film Commission – promoting Poland as one film region, supporting commercial productions (such as video clips or advertising films) and short film forms (e.g. promotional films) located on the territory of Krakow and Malpolska Region, cooperation with commercial television in the realisation of their programmes and presentation of the Commission’s activities on international festivals and film fairs.
