Support mechanisms for audiovisual
FONDS IMAGES DE LA FRANCOPHONIE (OIF)
The Fonds Images of the Organisation internationale de la francophonie (OIF), in partnership with the Film Industry Support Fund (FONSIC) of Côte d’Ivoire have set up the CLAP ACP scheme with the financial contribution of the ACP-EU Culture programme.
CLAP ACP aims to strengthen the film and audiovisual sector in the countries of the Organisation of African, Caribbean and Pacific States by facilitating co-production. Ultimately, the aim is, among other things, to increase the volume of co-productions and optimise their efficiency and dissemination.
The Fonds pour la Jeune Création Francophone supports film projects (short and feature-length films), audiovisual series and web content through the allocation of selective aid that can intervene at the development, production and/or post-production stage. Thanks to the involvement of broadcasters in the scheme, the fund also makes it possible to assess the distribution potential of projects as soon as they are selected.
Within the framework of the ACP-EU Culture programme, the DEENTAL-ACP action will enable projects receiving production support from the Fund for Young Francophone Creation to obtain additional support (called “Bonus”).
The World Cinema Fund (WCF) has launched the WCF ACP programme, which offers an additional funding opportunity for projects in the WCF and ACP regions. It will supplement the funding of projects whose financing has been recommended by the WCF or WCF Africa jury to potentially double or even triple the production funding granted to these projects.
