About the Project
Each year, the Robert Bosch Stiftung issues three Film Prizes for international cooperation between young German and Arab filmmakers (members of the Arab League) to realize a joint film project. The prizes, each worth up to 60,000 euros, are awarded in the categories short animation, short fiction film, and short or feature length documentary. The Film Prize of the Robert Bosch Stiftung is a competition and yearlong training program offering tailor made workshops to young emerging talents from Germany and the Arab world. The aim is to provide first international co-producing experience and support in the film business as well as to foster the idea of intercultural exchange. Furthermore, opening the door to various film markets and festivals, they benefit from valuable platforms with the film industry, hence establish or extend their network.
