APPLICATIONS OPEN FOR THE PORTUGUESE FILM FUND 2024

APPLICATIONS WELCOME UNTIL MARCH 5

Applications are now open for the tenth edition of the Portuguese Film Fund, a complementary instrument to support the post-production of Portuguese films created in 2011. The 2024 edition is made up of the usual partners: IndieLisboa – Associação Cultural, Universidade Lusófona de Humanidades e Tecnologias, Digital Mix Música e Imagem, Fundação GDA, The Yellow Color and Portugal Film – Agência Internacional de Cinema Português.

Applications are invited for short or feature films, regardless of genre (animation, documentary, experimental, fiction) in the early stages of post-production, by Portuguese directors (or foreigners with permanent residence in Portugal) and (co-)produced in Portugal. Entries are €5 for short film projects and €12 for feature film projects.

The prizes to be awarded are as follows:

a) Universidade Lusófona de Humanidades e Tecnologias: financial support of €1,500 awarded to a project of any length and genre;
b) Digital Mix Música e Imagem: sound post-production services for a feature film and a short film;
c) GDA Foundation: €6,000 for the creation of original music, rewarding one feature film (€4,000) and one short film (€2,000), or alternatively three short films (each €2,000);
d) The Yellow Color: two days in the studio in image post-production for a short film, with the technician(s) being paid separately.

The deadline is March 5 and the selected projects will be notified on April 5.

The 8 selected projects will then be presented before an international jury during the IndieLisboa festival (May 23-June 2), during which the film excerpts will also be screened at a Lisbon Screenings session.
