Extra funds for Flanders’ cultural, media and games sectors

Flanders’ new budget provides its cultural industry with an additional EUR 29 million. One of the main aims is to further support the development of games and series, as well as the maintenance and expansion of cultural infrastructure in Flanders.

Solid support

Around EUR 13 million of the new financial resources will be used to support large theaters and smaller cultural centers throughout Flanders. In addition, the Media Fund will receive an extra EUR 2 million, while the Game Fund can count on seeing an additional EUR 1 million. Both are part of the VAF, the Flanders Audiovisual Fund, one of the many financing options Flanders has to offer.

High-potential industry

The extra budget confirms the importance of the VAF and allows the industry to further develop itself. Sven Gatz, Flanders’ Minister of Culture: “We want to focus on first-rate scenarios and international series. And with half of our inhabitants playing at least one game per month, the Flanders-based game industry has enormous growth potential.”
