      • - The fund operates on a two tiered system with NOK10 million provided directly from the Norweigian Government and NOK25 million from private investors. Eligibility for the former will be based on the regional effect of a given production, while the latter is concerned with domestic theatrical releases. Invesments from the Zefyr fund can be combined with the 25% national rebate and other regional film funds, but not with both.
