German Films awards € 93.000 support for theatrical campaigns of German films abroad

At its fourth sitting of this year, on 3 July 2007, the „Distribution Support" awards committee allocated a total of € 93.000 funding for nine theatrical campaigns of German films abroad.

The committee decided to support the following films:

 

· EDEN in Japan

· EMMA'S BLISS (EMMAS GLUECK) in Sweden, Spain and Taiwan

· HOW TO COOK YOUR LIFE in the USA

· THE LIVES OF OTHERS (DAS LEBEN DER ANDEREN) in Russia

· LONGING (SEHNSUCHT) in France

· SUMMER '04 (SOMMER `04 AN DER SCHLEI) in Mexico

· FOUR MINUTES (VIER MINUTEN) in Spain

 

 

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.

 

The guidelines and the new application form for "Distribution Support 2007" can be obtained from German Films and are available for downloading via www.german-films.de/support
