AVEK: Scriptwriting and Production Grants

Institution: Promotion Centre for Audiovisual Culture (AVEK)


The main emphasis of AVEK's support is on creative documentaries, short fiction, animated films and media-art based productions.

AVEK's production grants are awarded for short films, documentaries and media art productions. Funding is not awarded for long feature films, demonstration or commissioned programmes.

Who can apply

AVEK participates in international co-productions with Finnish producer as a minor partner. Co-productions must have either a noticeable connection to Finland or have serious artistic involvement from Finland. In co-productions the Finnish co-production company applies the funding from AVEK. The money has to be used for Finnish artistic involvement.
