Film Prize of the Robert Bosch Stiftung for International Cooperation Germany/Arab World
Since May 2011 the Robert Bosch Stiftung has been a supporting member of the AG Kurzfilm.
Each year, the Robert Bosch Stiftung issues three Film Prizes for International Cooperation between young German filmmakers and their partners from the Arab World.
The prizes, worth up to 70,000 euros, are awarded in the categories animation, documentary, and short fiction film. Young filmmakers in the fields of production, directing, camera, and scriptwriting are given an opportunity to explore the methods and creative styles of their partner country.
Applications must be made by teams, not individuals. The film should be produced in Germany as well as in the partner country, stressing in particular the aspect of intercultural exchange. Website
