Łódź Film Fund

Drawing on its long-standing traditions associated with cinematography, the City of Łódź views film production in its territory as one of the most important ways of promoting its potential. Łódź provides financial support for film productions in order to attract audiovisual projects to the city. In the case of many projects, it represents significant assistance, without which they would never be completed.

Every year, the City makes a budgetary allocation for the co-funding of film productions which use local film-shooting locations and other resources. The number of applicants interested in receiving financial support for the production of full-length feature, documentary or animated films has been growing from year to year. Detailed information on the upcoming editions will be published on our website and Facebook page a reasonable time in advance.
The most essential aim of the competition is to ensure co-funding for projects of a high artistic value. However, the City is also ready to provide support for productions which are more focused on commercial success, especially those co-produced by world famous film studios or major film production companies, reserving itself the right to provide aid for such productions, too.
