The Estonian Film Institute’s (EFI) freshest initiative - support for developing screenplays for TV mini-series - gave its first round of support to the suspenseful crime drama “The Deep” and the children’s series “The Secret Society of Souptown And Cucumber Mafia”.
Script support shall be allocated for the creation of a script for a full-length feature film or a full-length animation film. Upon further financing of the film project, the amount of script support shall be included in the amount of development support.
Script support can be applied for by a legal entity whose principal activity is the production of films and to whom the property rights of the authors of the audio-visual work are transferred or licensed. The applicant has to be entered in the Estonian Business Register before the payment is made.
