Film Prize of the Robert Bosch stiftung for International Cooperation

bosch 545

Three Film Prizes for International Cooperation between young German and Arab filmmakers are awarded by the Robert Bosch Stiftung. A total of 70.000 euros is available for each of the foreseen categories including short animation, short or feature length documentary and short fiction film.

Only production teams (not individuals) including young filmmakers from both, Germany and one of the 22 Arab League countries, are eligible to apply, and the films should be produced both, in Germany and in the partner country, as the interaction between both cultures is an essential feature of the competition.

A total of 15 production teams will be selected and invited to pitch their film at the Berlinale Talents 2016 in Berlin (Germany), the major event for emerging filmmakers at the Berlin Film Festival, where a jury will then select the three winners.

Funds can be used for the complete production of the film, including travel and subsistence costs at the film’s locations, renting of equipment and salaries for the professionals involved, although a co-funding from the partner country is welcomed. The German team member organisation will receive and manage the grant, and report to the Robert Bosch Stiftung.

Complete guidelines in English and German are available on the Film Prize website.

Deadline for applications is September 18, 2015.

An Online Project Market networking platform is available upon registration to facilitate the team finding process between Arab filmmakers and German producers.
