IDFA Bertha Fund Europe: Distribution of International Co-Production

Institution: IDFA, Bertha Foundation


The IDFA Bertha Fund Europe stimulates the collaboration between independent European producers and producers from developing countries by supporting the production and distribution of documentaries realized through co-productions.

Through two different categories the program offers support to creative documentaries made by filmmakers from Africa, Asia, the Middle-East, Latin America and parts of Eastern Europe, that use strong visual treatments to tell compelling stories and have the potential to reach a global audience.

Distribution of international co-production: This category is designed to support innovative distribution plans for documentaries realized through international co-productions that have received prior support of the IDFA Bertha Fund. Distribution plans should seek to reach a broad global audience. Financing is made available for plans that make use of both innovative means of distribution and more traditional distribution forms.

Who can apply

Co-productions that have received prior support of the IDFA Bertha Fund are eligible.
