“From the stage to the video”: BMKÖS announces new video and streaming funding
As part of the “New Start Culture” package, the call for the “From Stage to Video” funding program starts today. Total volume: 2 million euros.
Vienna (OTS) – The Federal Ministry for Art, Culture, Public Service and Sport (BMKÖS) is today launching the call for tenders for the first funding program from the package of measures announced by the State Secretary for Art and Culture Andrea Mayer, “Restart Culture”.
Under the title “From the stage to the video”, the cultural department is now making two million euros available for video adaptations and streaming projects of productions in the fields of theater, dance, performance, cabaret, music and musical theater. Submissions are possible between March 22nd, 2021 and May 15th, 2021. The maximum funding amount per project is 35,000 euros.
Overall, the “Neustart Kultur” package, which is intended to support the recovery of Austrian cultural life, includes measures with a total volume of 20 million euros.
“We know that there are many finished productions that cannot currently be presented to an audience due to the ongoing ban on events. With this targeted and low-threshold project funding, we want to make the productions accessible to the public on the one hand and enable the artists to perform on the other, ”said State Secretary for Art and Culture Andrea Mayer.
“One and a half weeks ago, we presented the new start culture package worth 20 million euros for the Austrian art and culture scene. I would like to thank everyone involved that we can start this call with such a short lead time – because this is about funding that is urgently needed right now, at this point in time. “
The tender “From the stage to the video” is aimed at cultural institutions and artists in the fields of theater, dance, performance, cabaret, music and musical theater. The cost subsidies serve the digitization and sustainable use of existing analogue productions. The award is based on the proposal of an independent jury on the basis of content-related assessment criteria such as the concept of the project, professionalism of the technical implementation or qualification of the participants, but also the consideration of fair pay and diversity are included.
