PROMOTION OF FILM PRODUCTION
The Development education and publications desk is part of the Church Development Service, an Association of the Protestant Churches in Germany (EED).
The EED promotes, amongst other things, the production of cinema and television films dealing with so-called Third World questions and the mutual dependence between the North and the South.
Our board of directors meets three times a year and decides on the promotion and, in case of an affirmative decision, on the final amount to be allocated.
The EED does not support the production of ethnographic or « project films », i.e. films, which portray successful development projects. The project (start of shooting) should not be started before a decision was made by our board of directors.

Every filmmaker or producer may submit applications to the Church Development Service (EED)
