A new relief fund has been established by Netflix and The Netherlands Film Fund to aid those in the Dutch film and TV business who have been hit hardest by the coronavirus pandemic. The fund will be managed by the creators of the shows and movies whose production was halted because of the pandemic, and Netflix will provide one million euros to get it started in the Netherlands.
“As a Fund, we want to ensure that the entire chain is maintained so that beautiful Dutch production may be viewed this autumn and afterward,” said Bero Beyer, the head of Film Fund.” According to Beyer, the government’s relief measures for the cultural sector as a whole would be fully implemented with Netflix’s help.
The head of co-Production and acquisition at Netflix, Lina Brouneus, has claimed that “the creative talent in the Netherlands and our local partners with whom we develop content together is key to Netflix’s success.”Brouneus stated, “We want to do our share to help those who most need our support in these exceptional times.”
Next week, the official criteria will be written and posted to http://www.filmfonds.nl.On March 20th, Netflix announced the establishment of a $100 million relief fund to aid those in the creative community who lost their jobs during the coronavirus crisis and had nowhere to turn for financial support.
The majority of the rescue effort will go toward helping people employed by Netflix in the United States. The United Kingdom, Italy, Spain, and India are just some of the countries where $15 million has been set aside for international emergency funds established in collaboration with other organizations like Audiens.
