equipment

If the project is exclusively applying for the post-production stage, both the minimum project budget and the maximum PUA funding are cut by 50% for every category.

If the project is a short film (maximum duration 30 minutes, not a series) and doesn’t reach the minimum expenditure criteria for each category, it will require a minimum project budget of 1.000.000 Uruguayan pesos, with a maximum reimbursement cap of 6.000.000 Uruguayan pesos.
