EAfter 125 years of wildly unregulated filmmaking, there are now guidelines for what films should be made in Germany. They come from the Hamburg-Schleswig-Holstein Film Fund (FFHSH) and intervene in the first stage, in the development of materials. It also deals with staffing, technicians and sales. Here, for cutting and copypaste, the funding questions that filmmakers should ask themselves:
1. Does the story directly address one or more of the topics listed below?
a) Everyday life in the third phase of life
b) Gender roles
c) Hautfarbe bzw. People of Color
