Being Nominated

After the Project Market Amman and the Arab Animation Forum the German-Arab film teams, having either met at the Project Markets or found each other elsewhere, could prepare a joint application for the 2018 Film Prize. 

Many interested filmmakers responded to the call for the 2018 Film Prize. Corresponding to the formal criteria 21 projects have been forwarded to the selection committee, amongst which were 5 animations, 9 documentaries and 7 short fiction projects.

Producers from Germany together with their team partners from either Egypt, Jordan, Lebanon, Morocco, the Palestinian Territories, Saudi Arabia, Syria or Tunisia submitted a joint film idea.

On July 17, 2017 the selection committee met in the Robert Bosch Stiftung in Stuttgart to discuss the submitted applications, and nominated the ten German-Arab film teams, who are now invited to the training and competition program of the 2018 Film Prize of the Robert Bosch Stiftung. 

Representative members of each nominated team will be invited to three tailor made workshops and finally to the award ceremony: 

  • Project Development in Bremerhaven/Germany (Sept 25 to 29, 2017)
  • Producers Meeting in Dahshur/Egypt (Oct 23 to 26, 2017)
  • Pitch Forum in Berlin (Jan 14 to 18, 2018) 
  • Award Ceremony during Berlinale Talents (Feb 16 to 19, 2018)

On February 18, 2018 the jury will announce the three winner teams and award the prizes, each worth up to 60.000 €, at the award ceremony held in the frame of Berlinale Talents.
