In 2021, two of Germany’s major production incentives boosted inward investment in film and high-end TV series. The figures show a remarkable €740 million in German spend, which includes all costs incurred for production, including film-related goods and services, the fees of German members of the cast and crew, as well as foreign cast and crew for the period spent filming in the country.
Last year’s figure marks a €35 million increase on 2019 figures, proving that the pandemic crisis and its restrictions had little effect on Germany’s film and TV production.
In detail, the German Federal Film Fund (DFFF) and the German Motion Picture Fund (GMPF) awarded a total of €147.4 million in 2021, up €62.8 million on 2020 and €11.9 million on 2019, resulting in an almost five-fold increase in the initial outlay.
In 2021, the DFFF split €55 million among 89 new projects, including 66 fiction features, 21 documentaries and two animated features. Thirty-two of these were international co-productions. It also awarded €42.4 million in bursaries to service providers working on seven major international productions. Of these projects, John Wick: Chapter 4 received the grant of the biggest magnitude (€19.8 million). In total, DFFF funding generated over €465 million in local spend, almost five times its 2021 budget of €97.4 million. Moreover, the GMPF backed 19 series, including Baran bo Odar and Jantje Friese’s much-anticipated new eight-episode mystery-drama show 1899 [+lire aussi :
