Project Market Amman - Film Prize of the Robert Bosch Stiftung
The Royal Film Commission – Jordan started in 2012 a partnership with the German foundation the Robert Bosch Stiftung
with the aim of supporting collaboration between young filmmakers from Jordan and the Arab world on one hand, and those from Germany on the other.
The Robert Bosch Stiftung issues three annual Film Prizes for international cooperation between young German and Arab filmmakers to realize a joint film project. The prizes, each worth up to 60,000 euros, are awarded in the following categories: short animation, documentary, and short fiction film.
Each year and in cooperation with the Royal Film Commission – Jordan, the Robert Bosch Stiftung invites up to ten young and upcoming talented Arab film directors from the Middle East, Iraq and the Gulf region to meet with up to ten promising German producers at the Project Market Amman. The Arab directors must apply with film projects in one of the above-mentioned categories.
For the sixth consecutive year, the Project Market Amman
was held in April 2017. During the five-day event, a diverse program offered the filmmakers from the Arab World and Germany various occasions to get to know each other, to introduce each other’s work, to talk in detail about the directors’ project and to exchange knowledge and experiences. Joint events and excursions helped to intensify the newly acquainted contacts.
The meetings between directors and producers do not necessarily have to result in a partnership but can help them gain the experience of an international co-production market and extend their network. In the event that a team is formed, the first step towards preparing a joint application for the following round of the Film Prize of the Robert Bosch Stiftung is accomplished.
The communication language of the entire Film Prize program is English.
