The Foundation Statutes
of the SUISSIMAGE Cultural fund
provide for 10% of the annual income received - outside of its actual primary purpose - to be made available to the cultural commission to use as it thinks fit, so as to guarantee a measure of flexibility. Funds from this so-called free 10% quota
may be used to foster projects and events that are of importance for the entire Swiss film
and AV industry and require one-off support or start-up financing.
