At the first sitting this year on 5 February 2007, the "Distribution Support“ committee approved support for ten theatrical releases of German films abroad with a total of € 74.000.

The committee granted support for the following films:

• THE LIVES OF OTHERS in Spain and Turkey

• STRAJK in Poland

• FOUR MINUTES in Italy

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.
