HBF+Europe Minority Co-Prod & Post 2024: Funding News

Posted by

International Film Festival of Rotterdam’s Hubert Bals Fund (HBF) has selected eight projects for its HBF+Europe: Minority Co-production Support scheme, along with two projects for its HBF+ Europe: Post-production scheme.

The projects will receive €60,000 to support either their production or post-production. HBF+Europe supports projects from filmmakers based in Africa, Asia, Latin America, Middle East and parts of Eastern Europe, and encourages European co-production of those projects. One of the eight projects selected for Co-production Support must remain anonymous.

Hubert Bals Fund head Tamara Tatishvili said: “While demonstrating an impressive range of artistic approaches, all the projects in this selection call for the need to make our world a better place, elevating the crucial importance of multicultural cooperation. Each production team follows a complex path to bring projects to fruition, and in cases like the two supported projects from Argentina, these funds will prove crucial to realising ambitious, artistically driven work.”
