The Film Prize of the Robert Bosch Stiftung is coming to an end. For the last time, the Robert Bosch Stiftung will issue two Film Prizes for international cooperation between young German and Arab filmmakers to realize a joint film project. The prizes, each worth 60,000 Euros, will be awarded to short films (fiction, animation or documentary) or feature-length documentaries.

Egypt, Iraq, Jordan, Lebanon, Sudan, Syria, and Tunisia have been selected. The
diversity of topics ranges from representation of minorities to political
upheavals, women rights and generational challenges.
selected twelve Arab directors will have the chance to meet with twelve German
producers, with a strong female participation on both sides.
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 last round of the Film Prize of the Robert Bosch Stiftung is accomplished.
The communication language of the entire Film Prize program is English.
