Minority co-productions with VAF

Together with the Flanders Audio Visual Fund (VAF), the Netherlands Film Fund each year supports feature films, feature animation films and feature length documentaries, which are realized in co-production and released in both countries.

Who can apply

Applications for production support can be submitted on application dates by the Dutch producer (click here), who must have produced at least one theatrically released feature film, feature animation film or documentary in the Netherlands.


Maximum contribution 200,000 euro for a feature (animation) film
Maximum contribution 50,000 euro for a documentary

In addition, once a year both funds can grant one additional realisation contribution, NFF/VAF Plus, of 100,000 euro to a co-production in the category feature film or feature animation film. Only films that have previously received a contribution in the context of this collaboration can apply.
