      Thanks a lot for all your suggestions.

      FWIW, I think I'll just go with "special subsidy" for "ucelova
      dotace". "Special-purpose subsidy" covers all the bases but it
      sounds a bit cumbersome and Czenglishy to my ears... I think in
      English, "special" should suffice given the context (and probably
      isn't even necessary...)

      I liked Jamie's "targeted grant" as well, but all the sites I looked
      at where it was used seemed to be about giving special grants to
      various organisations to help relieve AIDS, famine, poverty-related
      problems, etc. Given this usage, I felt it might be a bit too heavy
      a term to describe a handout given to some director to make a film...

      As regards "kombinovana kopie", further googling after Matej's
      explanation seems to suggest it is a "composite print"...
