The World Cinema Fund (WCF) was founded in October 2004 as a joint initiative of the German Federal Cultural Foundation and the Berlinale. It immediately established itself as one of the leading institutions funding outstanding international productions and rapidly gained recognition from those in the industry. The World Cinema Fund supports films which could not otherwise be realized without its funding.
They are uniquely aesthetic, tell memorable stories and authentically reflect the cultural background of the regions in which they are made.
The WCF supports cooperative projects involving German film producers and non-European filmmakers and producers. The World Cinema Fund has focussed its funding activities in Latin America, Central America, the Caribbean, Africa, the Middle East, the Caucasus, Central Asia and Southeast Asia; additionally the following countries: Bangladesh, Nepal, Mongolia and Sri Lanka.
