Goethe-Institut > International Coproduction Fund

This funding is intended for coproductions by artists in the fields of theatre, dance, music and performance art, in which hybrid and interdisciplinary formats and the use of digital media may be key components. The target group comprises professional artists, ensembles and initiatives in Germany and abroad which demonstrably lack sufficient resources to realize their coproduction project on their own.

The application, which must be jointly submitted by the foreign partner, must show that good working contacts already exist and both parties are interested in putting together a joint production. The local Goethe-Institute may prove helpful in developing the application and project.

The Goethe-Institut is primarily interested in funding projects that are likely to be of high artistic calibre and to have considerable public impact. The results of the collaborative efforts are to be presented in a professional setting in at least one country, though ideally both in Germany and abroad.

Only project applications showing substantial contributions from all participating project partners in a detailed itemized budget will be considered. The requested funds, which are not to exceed € 25,000, should be used only as a secondary source of funding, mainly to help cover travel expenses.

Preference will be given to projects between German and non-European partners, particularly from transition countries.
Funding may be requested only for projects to be developed between 2016 and 2018.

Deadlines: for 2017: April 30, 2017 and for 2018: October 30, 2017 and April 30, 2018.
