Convocatoria: Script and Project Development: Bright Future/Hubert Bals Fund

Script and Project Development Support

A Script and Project Development grant can be used for the further development of a script (e.g. research, writing, translation or hiring a coach or script consultant), but can also be used to present a project to financiers or other potential partners at (international) co-production meetings or film festivals. The maximum contribution for Script and Project Development is €10,000. For upcoming deadlines, please see here.

  • HBF Script and Project Development Bright Future (max. €10,000 per project): a special call for filmmakers working on their first or second narrative feature film. Applications can be submitted twice a year and go through a preselection process first. Deadlines: 1 March and 1 August.


The Hubert Bals Fund is designed to help remarkable or urgent feature films by innovative and talented filmmakers from Africa, Asia, Latin America, the Middle East and parts of Eastern Europe on their road to completion. It provides grants in various categories that often turn out to play a crucial role in enabling these filmmakers to realise their projects.
