International Coproduction FundDEADLINE:
With the International Coproduction Fund, the Goethe-Institut supports coproductions by artists in the fields of theatre, dance, music and performance art, in which hybrid and interdisciplinary formats and the use of digital media may be key components.
Coproduction funding requires at least two partners to cooperate with each other. It requires a coproduction partner from outside of Germany (1st coproducer) cooperating with a partner in Germany. The partner in Germany is the 2nd coproducer in the application. On the application form, up to two other coproducers (four in total) can be entered.
A joint artistic development of the project is mandatory, therefore no guest performances, tours or festival participation will be funded.
This funding is intended for coproductions by artists in the fields of theatre, dance, music and performance art, in which hybrid and interdisciplinary formats and the use of digital media may be key components. The target group comprises professional artists and ensembles abroad and in Germany, which demonstrably lack sufficient resources to realize their coproduction project on their own.
The joint application, which must be submitted by the foreign partner (living and working outside of Germany), must show clearly that good working contacts already exist between the partners and that both parties are interested in putting together a dialogue-oriented production. The Head Office of the Goethe-Institut recommends highly getting in touch with local Goethe-Instituts for questions about the development of applications.
An application should include a feasible financial plan which, in addition to third-party funding, should show the substantial contributions of all the project partners involved. The amount of funding requested should not exceed €25,000.
