The fund provides coin for script and project development, distribution and post-production, and has helped in the completion of more than 530 pics from non-Western territories in its 17-year history.

Carlos Reygada’s “Battle in Heaven,” in the Official Competition at Cannes, and Amat Escalante’s “Sangre” (Un Certain Regard) were among those winning a post-production grant. Ghanian lenser Gahite Fofana’s “Early in the Morning” also got a grant for post.
