TFL Audience Design Fund
The TFL Audience Design Fund aims at supporting the implementation of innovative audience development and outreach strategies at the moment of distribution.
€ 45,000 grant combined with Audience Design Consultancies to reach, build and engage audiences through the implementation of innovative actions supporting the moments of sales and distribution.
TARGET: international co-productions in post-production stage (feature, creative documentaries, animation, over 60 minutes). The Audience Design Fund is addressed to producers or sales agents established in a country participating in the MEDIA strand (*) presenting projects co-produced with at least one partner from a country not participating in the MEDIA strand. The film must have a strong potential in terms of creative promotional approach.
The TFL Audience Design Fund aims at supporting films at distribution stage through the implementation of innovative audience engagement and outreach strategies. It is intended to support projects willing to explore new synergies between theatrical and digital distribution, to introduce innovative ideas to engage international audiences and to improve the worldwide circulation of films.
The AD Fund targets films presenting two different plans for distributing the picture, in different territories, one of which theatrical. In 2023, a total of 3 grants of € 45,000 each has been assigned to companies submitting an eligible film. The film release and distribution must be completed and reported by December 2024.
As an added value, the TFL AD Fund combines the grant with Audience Design Consultancies. The process includes 3 mandatory online sessions during which the film teams work with audience designers to create a strategy including the key goals and a series of actions to enhance the international promotion of the picture and its distribution across different territories. The consultancies go beyond the creative film marketing approach, using storytelling as a driving force to build communities, social and digital media outreach as well as off-line activities around the films. The strategy will cover different channels and devices for distribution across all relevant media.
The Fund has been created thanks to Creative Europe – MEDIA sub-programme support to International Co-production Funds
