Game developers who might be considering applying for the Danish Game Support program under the Danish Film Institute, will now have a chance to have all their questions about the program answered.
The Danish Film Institute has just announced, that they will be hosting what they call a “questions-meeting” on their premises in Copenhagen, in preparation for the upcoming deadline for submissions to the funding program. The meeting is scheduled to take place at September 3rd, 14:30 to 15:30 in the meeting room on the 3rd floor of the Danish Film House, Gothersgade 22 in Copenhagen.
To answer all the questions from the prospective applicants Simon Løvind, Games Commissions Editor at the Film Institute, will be present at the meeting, and he is also scheduled to give an introduction to the program during the meeting. In the description of the meeting, the Film Institute underlines, that it will not be possible to get feedback on specific applications or projects. The purpose of the meeting is to provide “general guidance about the application procedure and expectations to applications.”
The Danish Game Support Program gives out approx. 2,5 million DKK 2 times a year. The support is either a fixed amount of 75.000 DKK for idea development or a variable amount of up to 1,5 million DKK for project development. Next deadline for applications is September 17th.
The upcoming round of applications is also the last one under the current program. This fall, the political parties will be renegotiating the funding for the Danish Film Institute and cultural film support, which includes the Game Support Program. The Film Institute has suggested raising the budget for games funding by a factor of 4, but whether or not this becomes reality is still up to the political parties in the upcoming negotiations.
No registration is necessary for the meeting, but questions about the event can be directed towards Karen Jacobsen, project coordinator at the Danish Film Institute.
