German Films allocates € 52.500 funding for theatrical releases of German films abroad

In the third sitting of 2008, the „Distribution Support“ awards committee funded eight foreign theatrical campaigns of German films with a total € 42.500. Moreover, € 10.000 was awarded for another theatrical campaign by a further decision.

The committee decided to support the following films:

 

• BEAUTIFUL BITCH in Belgium

• YOU ARE NOT ALONE (DU BIST NICHT ALLEIN) in Austria/Alto Adige

• RABBIT WITHOUT EARS (KEINOHRHASEN) in Ukraine

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

• LOVE COMES LATELY in the USA

• RUDY, THE RACING PIG 2 (RENNSCHWEIN RUDI RUESSEL 2) in South Korea

• THE VISIBLE AND THE INVISIBLE (DAS SICHTBARE UND DAS UNSICHTBARE) in Spain

• TRIP TO ASIA in Switzerland/Liechtenstein

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 Euros 10,000 can also be allocated as a grant.

The guidelines and the new application form for "Distribution Support 2008" can be obtained from German Films and are available for downloading via www.german-films.de/support
