Grant announcements and deadlines

WE ARE CURRENTLY UPDATING THE LINKS ON THIS PAGE. WE ASK FOR YOUR PATIENCE.

 

Applications for The Finnish Film Foundation’s support can be submitted at any time to the online application system (available only in Finnish at the moment). There are, however, deadlines for the applications which will determine at which support decision meeting the applications will be handled.

The deadline is always at midnight (24:00). Applications submitted after the deadline will be handled in the support decision meeting after the next deadline. Attachments to the application must also be submitted by the deadline.
