German Films allocates € 44.000 funding for theatrical releases of German films abroad

In the second sitting of this year on 1 March 2007, the Distribution Support awards committee funded five foreign theatrical campaigns of German films with a total of Euros 44.000.

The committee decided to support the following films:

 

* UNVEILED (FREMDE HAUT) in France

* EDEN in Great Britain/Ireland and Israel

* PINGPONG in Ukraine

* FOUR MINUTES (VIER MINUTEN) in Australia

 

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 the form of a conditionally repayable loan. Funding of up to Euros 10.000 can also be allocated as a grant.

 

The guidelines and the new application form for "Distribution Support 2007" can be obtained from German Films and are available for downloading via www.german-films.de/support
