  • - Fuzz can provide equity funding of up to €500 000 for feature films, games, documentaries with theatrical distribution, and TV productions that are produced partly or entirely in Western Norway. Fuzz is looking at projects with a two-fold interest: 1) to recoup their investment alongside other equity investors, and 2) to strengthen the audiovisual sector in Western Norway. As a general rule, at least 50 % of the film crew or of the production's entire staff must be recruited locally. A foreign delegate producer must have an implementation contract with a Norwegian co-producer.
