Hubert Bals Fund
The Hubert Bals Fund supports groundbreaking film projects in every stage of the production process, working especially with filmmakers from countries where local film funding and infrastructure is lacking or restrictive. The fund closely collaborates with IFFR’s other industry activities, which include talent development and the co-production market CineMart.
