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

Volker Otte and his team specialise exclusively in the consultation, representation and application of film, media and cultural funding.

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

The service is geared towards German and international producers and co-producers, distributors, financiers, festivals and private persons. Moreover, the service is in demand for 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 institutes.

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

For all mandates outside of the specialisation, the office has an excellent legal network of colleagues available.
