German regional funding

Each of Federal Germany's 16 regions (Länder) have a responsibility for culture and media. Most of the Lander offer financial support for film and TV production. This support is aimed at individuals or companies based in each region or for projects located in the region. Most of the major Lander work closely with regional film commissions as well.

There are five major regional funds:

FilmFernsehFonds Bayern - state of Bavaria
Filmförderung Hamburg - Hamburg
Filmstiftung Nordrhein Westfalen - North-Rhine Westphalia
Medienboard Berlin-Brandenburg - Berlin and Brandenburg
Mitteldeutsche Medienförderung - covering Lander in the east of the country: Saxony, Saxony-Anhalt, and Thuringia

And some smaller ones, of which the largest are:

Medien-und Filmgesellschaft Baden-Würtemberg (MFG) - Baden-Wurtemberg
Nordmedia - covering the northern Lander, Lower Saxony and Bremen
