Immerse\Interact XL Grant Scheme

Immerse\Interact XL Grant Scheme

Budget: € 600,000

in collaboration with the Netherlands Film Fund

The Immerse\Interact XL Grant Scheme is a stimulus for projects within the interdisciplinary media landscape. It is a programme offered jointly by the Creative Industries Fund NL and the Netherlands Film Fund. Artistic research and experiment in the field of digital storytelling and the use of interactive or immersive media play a central role. In the context of the COVID-19 support measures, the Immerse\Interact XL Grant Scheme offers the possibility of a supplementary realization contribution.


The aim of the Immerse\Interact XL Grant Scheme is to give makers of immersive and interactive works an extra impulse and to provide them with support or additional support for their projects. The XL grants can be used for activities to realize high international ambitions, add production value and provide space for groundbreaking media research in an international context.

For the Immerse\Interact XL Grant Scheme, we are looking for distinctive, ambitious immersive and/or interactive media projects that have the potential to appeal to an international audience. New projects, but also projects with international potential that have already received a development or realization contribution from Immerse\Interact, but where chances to receive the required additional international funding have been lost due to COVID-19, can submit an application.

N.B.: Applications can only be submitted until 31 August 2021 in digital form to the Netherlands Film Fund. You can submit the online application form until 5:00 pm on the day of the closing date.
Film producers and AV producers (a legal entity, not a sole proprietorship or VOF) with a demonstrable track record in the field of interactive storytelling or immersive media forms (360-degree video, Virtual Reality, Augmented Reality) can apply for a XL contribution.

Applicants must be based in the Kingdom of the Netherlands, a member state of the EU, the EEA or Switzerland (but not a sole proprietorship or VOF).
A maximum of € 200,000 can be applied for per project (this includes any contribution to realization and distribution previously granted under Immerse\Interact).

The Fund contribution will not exceed 85% of the production budget. The budget for the production phase must be balanced within six months of a grant being awarded.

This grant scheme has a subsidy ceiling of € 600,000.
