The World Cinema Fund is an initiative of the German Federal Cultural Foundation 

The World Cinema Fund works to develop and support cinema in regions with a weak film infrastructure, while fostering cultural diversity in German cinemas. It is a fund that supports films that could not be made without additional funding; films that stand out with an unconventional aesthetic approach, that tell powerful stories and transmit an authentic image of their cultural roots.

The support is exclusively given to  the production and distribution of feature films and feature-length documentaries, to the regions of Africa,  Latin America, Central America, the Caribbean, the Middle East, Central Asia, Southeast Asia, the Caucasus as well as Bangladesh, Nepal, Mongolia and Sri Lanka.
