MAFF Development Funding:

The primary requirement for the applications to MAFF Development Funding was that the projects needed to have a Swedish co-producer and the project theme had a connection to the Arab identity, culture, or exile.

MAFF Development Funding is a pitch competition where projects are pitched in front of a jury, experts, and film professionals. They pitch their projects for the opportunity to win monetary development support. MAFF Development Funding was available for three categories; Short films (three projects were selected), Documentary films (three projects were selected), and Feature Fiction Films (five projects were selected).
