Rotterdam Fest Names Projects Receiving Funds for Expanded Initiative

The International Film Festival Rotterdam‘s Hubert Bals Fund has expanded its support range with a new 20,000 euro grant for low budget digital video productions from developing countries. During the fund’s fall 2006 selection round, four projects received production support in this new category: “At the End of the Daybreak” by Ho Yuhang (Malaysia), “In What City Does It Live?” by Liew Seng Tat (Malaysia), “Mondomanila” by Khavn De La Cruz (Philippines) and “Weed” by Wang Liren (China). More projects from this round of selections will be announced later this week. The Hubert Bals Fund has until recently made grants in three categories, including script development, post production and distribution within the country of origin. Over the past twenty years, the Hubert Bals Fund has supported nearly 600 film projects with a yearly fund of 1.2 million euros. The next application deadline for Hubert Bals Fund support is March 1, 2007. The 36th International Film Festival Rotterdam will take place January 24 – February 4, 2007.
