Austrian Television Fund

The Austrian Television Fund subsidizes Austrian films and co-productions involving Austrian and foreign partners. The annual budget for subsidies is 13.5 Million Euro. The maximum subsidy amount is 1 Million Euro for TV movies, and 200.000 Euro for TV documentaries and series (per episode). The minimum length is 45 minutes.

150% of the funding has to be spent in Austria. An Austrian co-producer as well as the cooperation of an international or national TV-station is necessary to apply for the funding. On four scheduled submission dates the general manager of the Austrian Television Fund selects films for subsidies.

Grants can be awarded to cover a maximum of 20% of reasonable overall production costs. The decisive criterion for receiving a subsidy is the TV production’s explicit cultural significance for Austria or Europe.
