German Films awards € 47.000 funding for theatrical releases of German films abroad

In this year's seventh sitting on 21 December 2006, the "Distribution Support" awards committee funded seven foreign theatrical releases of German films with a total of € 47.000.

The committee decided to support the following films:

 

• 3° COLDER (3° KAELTER) in Spain/Andorra

• PINGPONG in Belgium

• INTO GREAT SILENCE (DIE GROSSE STILLE) in Poland

• THE LIVES OF OTHERS (DAS LEBEN DER ANDEREN) in Taiwan

• REQUIEM in Romania

• NET (NETTO) in France

• TOUGH ENOUGH (KNALLHART) in France

 

Launched in 2005, the "Distribution Support" program was planned to finance supplementary measures in addition to release campaigns already planned by foreign distributors. The support is awarded to a maximum of € 50.000 in the form of a conditionally repayable loan. Funding amounts of up to € 10.000 can also be awarded as grants.

 

The guidelines and the new application form for 2007 for "Distribution Support 2007" are available with immediate effect from German Films and can be downloaded from www.german-films.de/support
