Programme-based funding

Besides General Project Funding which supports projects across all disciplines, the German Cultural Foundation has established individual programmes which focus on a particular topic or artistic field.

The following programmes are currently open to funding:

With its programme “360° – Fund for New City Cultures”, the Federal Cultural Foundation wishes to encourage institutions to actively address the issue of immigration within their organisations and present it to urban society in such a way that promotes social acceptance and openness to immigrant communities.

The Doppelpass Fund supports cooperation between independent groups in all artistic areas and established dance companies and theatres. The Fund has been prolonged in a modified form. Doppelpass Plus will now support new tour-suited co-productions and expand existing tandem collaborations to include a third partner.

The hochdrei Fund awards funding to exemplary projects at city and municipal libraries that are jointly developed and implemented with partners from their communities.

The World Cinema Fund supports cooperative projects involving German film producers and non-European filmmakers and producers.

Information about upcoming programmes will also be posted on this page.

You can find an overview of all the projects and programmes funded or initiated by the German Cultural Foundation on the page Programmes & Projects.
