THE CALLS FOR APPLICATIONS FOR TANZANIA AND UGANDA ARE NOW OPEN AND WILL RUN UNTIL OCTOBER 25, 2021.
The DW Akademie Film Development Fund has been designed to support filmmakers from the Global South who are passionate about storytelling and want to build their careers.
We are looking for filmmakers from Uganda or Tanzania who have already made one or more films and would now like support in developing their next project!
We offer a comprehensive, year-long program that includes financial support, professional mentoring and training.
Two independent juries will award five filmmakers (director or writer) per country to receive up to 10,000 Euros to contribute to the development of their film project.

After sorting through over 60 applications, a jury of film experts selected Abraham Gezahagne Assefa, Dirbdil Assefa Akirso, Hiwot Admasu Getaneh and Henok Mebratu as the first grantees of the DW Akademie Film Development Fund.
The filmmakers will receive one year of funding, training and mentorship from DW Akademie in a project supported by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ).
