The Hubert Bals Fund is designed to bring feature films by talented filmmakers from developing countries closer to completion. Here is a complete description of what the HBF does.
HBF+Europe provides substantial financial support to European producers serving as minority co-producers in feature films with theatrical potential. Deadline: 1 April 2015
Each year, the Dioraphte Award (€10.000) is conferred upon the Hubert Bals Fund-supported film with the highest votes from the festival audience.
All the past HBF selections and harvests in a row may be found here.
The HBF gives financial support twice a year. Application deadlines are 1 March and 1 August. Find out more about the official regulations and entry forms.
NFF+HBF (previously HBF Plus) is a collaboration between the Netherlands Film Fund and the Hubert Bals Fund.
HBF has selected eight film projects to receive script and project development grants totaling €80,000. Two projects from Turkey and Nepal have been selected for NFF+HBF.
