German Films allocates € 106,000 funding for theatrical releases of German films abroad

In the second sitting of 2010, the Distribution Support awards committee met on March 11 to fund nine foreign theatrical campaigns of German films with a total of € 81,000. Another two theatrical releases were awarded € 25,000 in a further decision.

The committee decided to support the following films:

 

EVERYONE ELSE (ALLE ANDEREN) in the USA

DIE JAGD NACH DEM SCHATZ DER NIBELUNGEN in China

JOHN RABE in the USA

LISSI AND THE WILD EMPEROR (LISSI UND DER WILDE KAISER) in Brazil

FRIENDS FOREVER (MULLEWAPP) in the CIS states

SOUL KITCHEN in Brazil

THE WHITE RIBBON (DAS WEISSE BAND) in Argentina, the CIS states/Baltic states and Hong Kong/Macau

DESERT FLOWER (WUESTENBLUME) in France

RABBIT WITHOUT EARS 2 (ZWEIOHRKUEKEN) in the CIS states

 

The "Distribution Support" funding program has existed since 2005 and supports the theatrical release of German films abroad. Subsidies are awarded for additional measures over and above the release campaign which had already been planned by the foreign distributors. The support to a maximum of Euros 50,000 is granted in the form of a conditionally repayable loan. Funding of up to Euros 10,000 can also be allocated as a grant.
