The Commission as a body created by Ethiopian Film Commission to develop and promote the equitable growth of the Ethiopian film industry. The Commission facilitates funding opportunities to the development, production and marketing of Ethiopian film content, as well as for the development of Ethiopian talent and production businesses.
Access to funding is one of the challenges that have been highlighted by the film industry stakeholders as needing both long and short term solutions. The commission has the mandate to facilitate funding of film projects and would like to explore the establishment and implementation of a film fund.
We provide loans and equity financing to Ethiopian filmmakers to assist in the development and production of feature films and short films.
We invest in and promote short films, low budget features and cinematic documentaries and feature films with significant Ethiopian content.
