FFC News: Production funding increases with introduction of Producer Offset.
The final FFC board meeting for 2007 has approved a record number of 22 projects generating $72.94 million worth of production in film, television drama and documentary projects.
"With the introduction of the producers offset film makers are now empowered to get stronger deals together. This has led to many more projects being presented to the board than we can finance, but that is a sign of a healthy, dynamic and energised industry," said Brian Rosen today.
"The slate announced today reflects the boards desire to back strong creative teams, with box office potential and diversity."
Projects receiving funding today are feature films; both market place and evaluation, television drama and documentary.
