More money for co-productions with Norway


Norway is taking a step forward on the international scene by increasing funding for co-productions and international promotion of local product. This year funding for co-productions has increased with NOK 5 million.

For 2013 funding from the Norwegian Film Institute for co-productions is NOK 16 million (approx., EUR 2,1 million). In 2012 the number was NOK 11 million. In addition it is also possible to seek funding from SØRFOND – a fund financed by the Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and run by the Norwegian Film Institute. The fund currently runs from 2012 to 2015 and has NOK 3 million (approx. EUR 0,35 million) in 2013 to be granted for support for co-productions with countries from the south.

Grants from SØRFOND contribute to film productions whose main producer is based in countries on the current OECD DAC list of ODA recipients. A Norwegian minority co-producer is required. The majority producer must represent a private production company with main responsibility for the financial planning and practical implementation of the project. The minority producer must represent a private and independent production company in Norway that is not publicly owned and is independent in relation to broadcaster ownership.
