Film Prize of the Robert Bosch Stiftung
for International Cooperation

Germany and the Arab World

Each year, the Robert Bosch Stiftung issues three Film Prizes for international cooperation between young German and Arab filmmakers (members of the Arab League) to realize a joint film project. The prizes, each worth 60,000 euros, are awarded in the categories short animation, short fiction film, and short or feature length documentary. 

The Film Prize of the Robert Bosch Stiftung is a competition and yearlong training program offering tailor made workshops to young emerging talents from Germany and the Arab world. The aim is to provide first international co-producing experience and support in the film business as well as to foster the idea of intercultural exchange. 

Furthermore, opening the door to various film markets and festivals, they benefit from valuable platforms with the film industry, hence establish or extend their network.

Only German-Arab teams can apply for the Film Prize. The young filmmakers should come from one member country of the Arab League and Germany and be in the beginning of their carrier. The film should be produced in Germany as well as the partner country.

To find the right team partner, project markets are organized in Germany and the Arab World by the Robert Bosch Stiftung early spring each year. To participate filmmakers can apply individually.
