DFI Launches ‘Film for the Future’ Proposal

On Monday the Danish Film Institute releases its ‘Film for the Future’ proposals, which is part of the forthcoming film agreement 2015-2018. According to the DFI, the changing market over the last decade has gradually destabilised and weakened the existing model of the production sector. The institute is offering solutions via four key measures: 

  • increase of state support
  • reallocation of film income so that producers would get a bigger slice of revenues
  • creation of a new structure in the financing of films involving contributions from digital players against an easing of the release windows and introduction of a premium VOD window.
  • redistribution of contributions from TV stations to the film sector.
