Emergency financial assistance in the context of the Corona crisis

Rightsholders who work exclusively on a freelance basis or are contingent workers and who have suffered a loss of income due to Covid-19-related event or production cancellations can receive a one-off grant of 250 Euros as part of GVL's social grants.

A prerequisite is that the applicants have participated in at least one regular distribution of the GVL. In addition, we require proof of the loss of the event or production (confirmation/cancellation by the organiser or of the production, proof of loss of earnings).

Voice actors which cannot provide evidence for cancellations due to short-term engagements that they are now missing out on, are requested to send us a separate attachment in which the artist confirms this fact in writing and by signing it personally.

For the application, please go to the German page.
