Details of DW Akademie Film Development Fund Application Form

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. DW Akademie is 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!


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.


Filmmakers (directors/scriptwriters) who are based in Tanzania or Uganda and have worked in a professional context on at least one fictional or non-fictional production are eligible to apply. The film needs to have been released either locally or internationally (e.g., theatrical release, screening in a national or international festival, TV broadcast, digital third-party broadcast, streaming/VOD).

Please note that you must be a Ugandan or Tanzanian citizen to apply. Filmmakers from the diaspora are not eligible.

Eligible formats are fictional and non-fictional feature-length films (at least 60 minutes) currently in development.

The fund focuses on the development stage of a film’s overall production. This is the phase for creating ideas, writing screenplays, acquiring financing, contracting rights, etc.

Development activities eligible for funding include, but are not limited to: work on your screenplay, research (travel), production of a mood reel, participation in labs (lab and travel fees), acquiring financing for production (work on further funding applications, travel to festivals, etc), location and/or character/protagonist scouting, etc.
