German Films allocates € 29.000 for theatrical release of German films abroad

In this year’s seventh sitting on 15 November 07, the "Distribution Support" awards committee funded three foreign theatrical releases of German films with a total of € 29,000.

The committee decided to support the following films:

 

• FREE WILL (DER FREIE WILLE) in France

• HOUNDS (JAGDHUNDE) in France and Switzerland

 

 

 

The support for the following films with a total of € 14,000 had already been decided before this session:

 

• 4 MINUTES (4 MINUTEN) in Japan

• EMMA’S BLISS (EMMAS GLUECK) in Quebec

 

 

The "Distribution Support" program of German Films has existed since 2005. The funding is intended for the financing of additional measures to supplement the release campaign which had already been planned by the foreign distributors. The support of a maximum of € 50,000 is granted in the the form of a conditionally repayable loan. Funding of up € 10,000 can also be allocated as a grant.

 

The guidelines and new application forms for "Distribution Support 2007" are available from German Films and can also be downloaded from www.german-films.de/support.
