New HBF scheme and deadlines for 2023
14 November 2022
The Hubert Bals Fund is pleased to announce it is launching a new scheme, financially supported by Creative Europe MEDIA, to provide funding for the post-production of minority European co-productions. The call for applications will open during IFFR 2023 until the deadline on 1 April 2023, which will also apply to projects for the HBF+Europe: Minority Co-production Scheme.
Unlike the past few years, there will not be a Script and Project Development Support call for spring 2023, and therefore the next deadline for the scheme will be 1 August 2023. There will be no March 1 deadline.
Bianca Taal, head of the Hubert Bals Fund: “We are delighted that we will be able to offer support in the crucial phase of post-production with the help of Creative Europe. We are constantly assessing the changing needs of filmmakers and always striving to see how we can continue to be a crucial partner for groundbreaking film projects. After announcing another remarkable round of filmmakers and projects in this development round, the next call for the scheme will be August 2023 as we use the time to consider how best to develop and revitalise the fund for the years to come.”
