Filmmakers spent around 2,000 days shooting for new films and series in Hamburg and Schleswig-Holstein last year. This emerges from the balance sheet of the Moin Film Fund, which is available to the German Press Agency. The film crews spent most of it, around 1300 days, in the Hanseatic city. A total of around 60 subsidized cinema films are in the starting blocks for the coming years.
In 2022, the Moin Film Fund was able to distribute 16.9 million euros for projects, screenplays, cinema and series shoots. A good 300 funding commitments were made. A large part of the money comes from the city of Hamburg (10 million euros), the state of Schleswig-Holstein (1.0 million euros) and from the media state contracts (2.5 million euros). Most of the money, 9.1 million euros, has been used for the production of cinema films. The numbers will look similar in 2023, said Helge Albers, Managing Director of Moin Filmförderung.
