Supporting films

In addition to borrowing short-film programmes, you can also schedule single short films as supporting films and hire them from us. If you do this regularly, we will support you with a new bulk discount. You can borrow 10 short films a year from us (with one screening each) for 220 euros; 20 short films per year (with one screening each) cost just 350 euros (in each case plus transport + 7% tax if applicable). The German Federal Film Board (FFA) has also been encouraging the screening of short films as supporting films in Germany for several years with a subsidy of up to 80% of the verified costs for film rentals, advertising and transport.


We have put together a selection of works that function well as supporting films from the acquisitions of the past five years.
