Production funding

Complementing the guest performance funding introduced in Baden-Württemberg in 1993, Production funding is a second, important means of funding to help increase the number of performances of a production in its home town and also to improve opportunities for guest performances. This form of production funding is unique in Germany to date.

Funding is only provided if there are sufficient funds available. There is no legal entitlement to funding. The application must reach the LaFT BW offices no later than 2 weeks before the performance date. The maximum amount of funding per individual artist / group is 5.000 EUR per year.

The Production funding is divided into two models.

  • Model 1: Funding of productions in home town 
  • Model 2: Funding of guest performances without a fixed fee agreed in the contract.

The guidelines provide more information about the funding models.

If you have any questions about the application, you can contact our office.
