of the top 100 companies in the German media sector

Bavaria's media sector represents high sales; Munich's information and communications and media sectors, for example, generate around EUR 70 billion. Success comes down to good staff. That is why many institutes in Bavaria, as well as institutions such as MedienCampus Bayern e.V., provide exemplary media education and further training. Success also comes down to good financing. That is why Bavaria offers outstanding financial support. When compared to other film funding organisations in Germany, FilmFernsehFonds Bayern is one of the most successful organisations in this field. Bavaria also provides top support for cultural and educational games.
