German Films allocates € 54,000 funding for theatrical releases of German films abroad

In the fifth sitting of 2009, the „Distribution Support“ awards committee met on December 16 to fund nine foreign theatrical campaigns of German films with a total of € 54,000.

The committee decided to support the following films:

 

- EVERYONE ELSE (ALLE ANDEREN) in Denmark

- INTO GREAT SILENCE (DIE GROSSE STILLE) in South Korea

- CHERRY BLOSSOMS - HANAMI (KIRSCHBLUETEN – HANAMI) in Romania

- NOBODY’S PERFECT in the United States of America

- PIANOMANIA in Romania

- SAME SAME BUT DIFFERENT in Switzerland

- SOUL KITCHEN in Italy

- THE WHITE RIBBON (DAS WEISSE BAND) in Spain and Hungary

 

 

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.
