German Films awards € 43.000 support for theatrical campaigns of German films abroad

At its fifth sitting of this year, which took place on two different dates in August 2007 and per circulation procedure, the „Distribution Support" awards committee allocated a total of € 43.000 funding for eight theatrical campaigns of German films abroad.

The committee decided to support the following films:


• TO THE LIMIT in Switzerland

• FOUR MINUTES in Holland

• EDEN in Argentina

• A FRIEND OF MINE in Greece

• OFF BEAT in Hungray

• MY FUEHRER in Norway


• SUMMER IN BERLIN in the CIS and the Baltic States


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