The FFA is Germany’s national film funding institution and supports the interests of German cinema. Apart from its duties as a funding body, the FFA is the central service agency for the German film industry. Its budget is financed via the so-called film levy which is raised, among others, from the cinemas, the video industry and television. The FFA’s annual budget is around 76 million Euros. Operating from the point of view of economic viability and culture, the FFA funds feature films at all stages of production and exploitation, from script development through production to distribution, sales and video distribution. Further support is made available for the funding of cinemas, the preservation of the film heritage, the reception and promotion of German cinema abroad, and for the provision of film education. Furthermore, the FFA has a remit to coordinate film support measures by the Federal Government and regional states and to support the collaboration between the film industry and the broadcasters.
