HBF Fall selection 2019

21 November 2019

Eleven projects selected for HBF’s development scheme and two selected for NFF+HBF’s production scheme.

The Hubert Bals Fund provides financial support to remarkable feature films by innovative filmmakers from Africa, Asia, Latin America, the Middle East and Eastern Europe. From an impressive 480 eligible projects submitted for the HBF fall 2019 selection, eleven films have been selected for their Script and Project Development Scheme, receiving €9,000 each. Falling under two categories, Bright Future for emerging filmmakers and Voices for more established makers, nine of the supported film projects will be film feature debuts. The HBF Script and Project Development scheme is also supported by the NFF+HBF Co-development scheme and the Tiger Film Mecenaat.

The NFF+HBF Co-production Scheme has additionally granted two projects €50,000 for production support. Both selected projects previously received support from other HBF grant schemes. The HBF fall selection 2019 is excited to include a majority of films originating from countries less extensively represented in the film industry – including Haiti, Rwanda, Dominican Republic, Paraguay, Nicaragua and Vietnam.
