About the Panel – Charting New Horizons: Evolving Perspectives in Film Funding

The film landscape is undergoing significant changes. This is reflected not only in the amendments to the FFG (Filmförderungsgesetz) at the federal level but also in the restructuring of regional film funding. Similarly, the upheaval is evident in streaming services, media libraries, cinema, and television. This panel will discuss why new funding guidelines and pathways in film financing are necessary. What changes are already apparent, and how can we create new pathways for a sustainable, diverse, and high-quality film landscape? In particular, we want to explore innovative approaches and models that support women in the film industry and promote gender equality.

Guests: INGA BECKER – Diversity & Inclusion Consultant at MOIN Film Funding; DR. LISA GIEHL – Executive Vice President Subsidies & Public Policy in the field of funding and public policy within LEONINE; DR. MARIA NÜST – Legal Counsel at Beta Film GmbH.
The panel will be hosted by WIFTI and WIFT Germany Board Member Mara Luka, and WIFT Germany member Isabelle Feldwisch.
