FilmFernsehFonds Bayern (FFF Bayern) is the public funding organization of Bavaria for film, TV, cinemas, XR/VR and digital games. Since 2009 FFF Bayern supports the development and production of high quality and innovative games with a culturally or educationally ambitious approach.


Together with our partners under the umbrella of Games / Bavaria we want to enhance and strengthen the Bavarian games industry, to ensure a diverse cultural landscape, and to support innovation. Our contribution is above all the project-based financial support of start-ups and established companies.
