The Flanders Audiovisual Fund (VAF) is the cultural and media public funding body of Belgium’s Flemish Community. It includes three specialised funds: the VAF/Film Fund, VAF/Media Fund and VAF/Game Fund.
The funds focus on stimulating local creative talent, mainly by offering selective support schemes for scriptwriting, development, production and promotion. Minority co-productions can only apply for support if creative talent from Flanders is involved in key positions and 50% of the overall financing is confirmed.
The annual budget of the Flanders Audiovisual Fund (VAF) available for production support is 11.8 million euros (Film Fund), 5.9 million euros (Media Fund) and 1.7 million euros (Game Fund).
