Besides General Project Funding which supports projects across all disciplines, the German Cultural Foundation has established individual programmes which focus on a particular topic or artistic field.

The following programmes are currently open to funding:

The programme hochdrei – Changing City Libraries aims to strengthen their role as cultural locations. The hochdrei Fund awards funding to exemplary projects at city and municipal libraries that are jointly developed and implemented with partners from their communities.

The World Cinema Fund supports cooperative projects involving German film producers and non-European filmmakers and producers.

Information about upcoming programmes will also be posted on this page. You can find an overview of all the projects and programmes funded or initiated by the German Cultural Foundation on the page Programmes & Projects.
