Visiting goEast: Frank W. Albers presents the Robert Bosch Stiftung’s “Promotional Prize for Joint Film Productions by young German and Eastern / South Eastern European filmmakers”. He will inform about the intentions that led to its creation two years ago. Some of the prize-winners will be present to talk about their experiences.
The Robert Bosch Stiftung issues three promotional prizes for joint film productions by young German and Eastern as well as South Eastern European filmmakers. The prize is awarded in the categories animated film, documentary, and short film.
Contestants must submit a sample feature by their film team director as well as a detailed project outline and budget plan. Each team must consist of at least a producer, director, camera operator, and screenwriter.
The grant primarily covers the productions team’s expenses for travel, meals, and accommodation. It may, to a lesser extent, also be allocated to cover production expenses (cut, copies). Filming material and technical film equipment such as cameras, post-production-tools etc. are not allowed. Every winning production can receive up to 70,000 euros in funds.
Qualifying applications will be submitted to an independent jury. The jury will short-list up to 15 teams. Up to three members of each short-listed team will be invited to Stuttgart to present their film. Up to two members of each winning team will have the opportunity to participate in the Berlinale Talent Campus.
A detailed description of criteria and rules as well as a downloadable application form and the deadlines are available at
Two of the films supported in 2005 will be screened during the workshop: the German-Romanian documentary VILLAGE OF SOCKS (directed by Ileana Stanculescu and Klaudia Begic) and the German-Serbian-Montenegrenian short film AMOR FATI (by Dennis Todorovic). Additionally, goEast screens MOUSE by Wojtek Wawszczyk who was supported last year for his German-Polish animated film SPLINTER.
For 2006 the jury decided to give grants to the German-Bulgarian animated film THREE SISTERS AND ANDREY (by Boris Despodov), the German-Romanian-Latvian documentary LES ENFANTS DE PARADA (by Annett Schütze) and the German-Croation short film MILAN (by Michaela Kezele). All these productions will be finished at the end of 2006.
