The Interactive Development Fund, a Film Commission grant designed to facilitate the development of Virtual Reality (VR), Augmented Reality (AR) and gaming projects, is now open. The deadline for applications is 16 March 2018.

The funding will be made available for the development of interactive stories and design, with the goal of creating a prototype that can be taken to market for financing.

Funding of $200,000 has been allocated to the programme, with the expectation that support will be for a maximum $25,000 grant.  In exceptional circumstances, the NZFC may consider offering up to $50,000, but this will be treated as equity investment as opposed to a grant.

To apply, please register and submit your application using our new Online Application Portal.

Full details of the Interactive Development Fund can be found here.
