Berg asked to head film finance

World Brief

Christine Berg, head of film subsidy org MSH in Schleswig-Holstein, has been appointed to head the federal government’s new film financing scheme.

Berg will oversee the plan, dubbed the Productino Cost Compensation Model, at the Federal Film Board (FFA) beginning in December.

The fund will offer $77 million a year for the next three years for features, docus and animated features produced in Germany, covering up to 20% of their budgets.

Plan expands on a similar scheme introduced in 2005 by the administration of former Chancellor Gerhard Schroeder, who greenlit a $38 million-a-year fund to support local productions.

The MSH, meanwhile, is being merged with neighboring subsidy board FilmFoerderung Hamburg.
