The objective of the Funding Scheme is to nurture cross-sectoral production teams in the new age of cinema and to expand new distribution markets for the Hong Kong film industry by producing high-quality streaming content.
The scheme will be conducted through a competition to recruit participating teams to develop content of mini-series to be broadcast on streaming platforms. The shortlisted teams must provide a detailed proposal and full script of the first six to 12 episodes. They will be awarded $0.6 million to $1.2 million for script development. Each winning team will be awarded $4.5 million to complete the production of the first episode or first two episodes of the series. Together with the script development fee, each winning team will be awarded a total of up to $5.7 million in total. A maximum of four winning teams will be subsidised. The winning team is free to engage in agreements with streaming platforms/investors to complete the entire series.
