FFF Bayern

FFF Bayern is a reliable funding partner for the film, series and games industry in Bavaria. With an annual budget of approx. € 40 million, support can be provided on each stage of the production process. Series can be funded within our two programs: The regular funding program as well as our special program for Internatinal Co-Productions. For the regular program, the production of television series (at least six episodes) can be supported with up to 30% of the production costs. The maximum amount is 1 million euros. The production of television series can only be supported if a television broadcaster is involved in the financing as a co-producer and if linear exploitation is guaranteed. 

Within our special program for International Co-Productions, the maximum amount is 2 million euros. The series must be intended and suitable for international exploitation and the production costs per episode should be at least 1.2 million Euro (respective to 60 minutes length) or 20,000 Euro per minute for other lengths per episode.  

In order to get access to the FFF Bayern, international productions require a German co-producer and only producers with a registered office, branch or place of business in Germany are eligible to apply.  

Series that have been funded by FFF Bayern in recent years include the Netflix Sci-Fi-Series DARK, the Sky Thriller-Series The Pass Season 1&2, the Amazon Prime Biopic We Children From Bahnhof Zoo, the Drama-Series KaDeWe, as well as the TVNOW Comedy-Series Herzogpark and the Crime-Adventure-Series Wild Republic.
