Babelmed nominated at Prix Europa Print
Around 1000 media professionals from about 40 countries are expected to come to Berlin for the 21st edition of the biggest tri-medial festival in Europe . From 255 nominations they will be selecting this year's best European Television-, Radio- and Internet productions during the festival week from 13 until 20 October 2007 . It is hosted by the German broadcaster Rundfunk Berlin-Brandenburg (RBB). Partners of the festival are European broadcasters, the European institutions, the Länder Berlin und Brandenburg , and their common bodies Medienanstalt (mabb) and Medienboard.

Broadcasters and producers answered with a record number of entries from 36 countries to this year's call for entries. This meant hard work for the pre-selection juries, consisting of European television critics and media professionals who met in
Berlin in August. " Europe is a very rich world of documentary-making, we had a choice between a variety of excellent documentary programmes. What a shame that they can't all be shown in October", said Eduardo Cintra Torres, O Público , .
