Interactive and Innovative

  • Games

    The Games industry is one of the fastest-growing sectors in Germany’s capital region. Medienboard funds all genres of high-quality, entertaining, and marketable games. This includes both casual games and AAA titles, encompassing debut productions from young game developers as well as established companies’ projects.

  • Transmedia

    Various media and distribution platforms are converging to an ever greater extent. Cross-media formats often produce innovative new approaches. Medienboard thus supports transmedia and cross-media content and new distribution models which cross borders between different media types.

  • Virtual Reality

    Virtual and augmented reality are no longer simply science-fiction visions. Hardware is available, and the market potential for associated content and applications is huge. The demand for virtual- and augmented-reality content will grow strongly in the near future. Medienboard was Germany’s first funding institution to provide targeted support for the development and implementation of applications in these areas. 

  • Apps and Games for Children

    No reason to fear digital content for the littlest ones! Children today grow up with digital media. Interactive, child-friendly apps for smartphones and tablets, and educational games for computers and mobile devices are therefore an important element of media socialisation. The Medienboard provides funding for promising projects by developers in this field.


    Mit dem Pilotprogramm DIGI.TALe fördert das Medienboard Berlin-Brandenburg gemeinsam mit der Filmuniversität Babelsberg KONRAD WOLF und der dffb studentische narrative Inhalte mit innovativem und experimentellem Charakter. Genre, Format, Länge oder Distributionskanäle sind dabei nicht vorgegeben.
