The IDFA Bertha Fund supports international co-productions between documentary filmmakers in Africa, Asia, Latin America, Middle East and parts of Eastern Europe and European co-producers.
The fund is for non-fiction media across all platforms (film, radio, print, photojournalism, online and multimedia) that tells original and engaging stories from the developing world.
The fund is looking to support smart, strategic outreach campaigns for ambitious independent documentary feature films with a social issue at their core; films which have the ability to achieve real change on a local, regional or global level.
The maximum support of a start-up grant is € 7,500 per project. Movies that Matter supports small-scale projects that have a total budget of less than € 20,000. Projects are eligible for a start-up grant for a maximum of two times.
