Consultation, Legal Representation and Application Service for Projects with Public Funding

Volker Otte and his team specialises exclusively in consulting, representing and application of film, media and cultural funding.

The service covers state-of-the-art structuring, filling and processing of applications for film, media, festivals and cultural projects financed by German and European funding bodies that are applicable from Germany (e.g. German Federal Film Fund, BKM, German regional funds, Creative Europe and Eurimages). Furthermore, applications to the national authorities responsible for certificates of origin (BAFA) and other German certificates like FBW and FSK are offered.

The service is addressed to German and international producers and co-producers, distributors, financiers, festivals and private persons. Moreover, the service is in demand from political decision-makers, associations and guilds, for example, for the creation of funding guidelines.

In addition, the office offers individual workshops and lectures for corporations, film academies, colleges, media conventions and further education institutions.

The office also provides a confidential emergency service for projects in a current crisis situation.

The office has an excellent legal network of colleagues available for all mandates outside of the specialisation.
