Robert Bosch Stiftung: Co-Production Prize
Institution: Robert Bosch Stiftung
The Foundation's main goal when promoting films is international understanding. The Foundation is currently focused on German–Arab film projects. With the Film Prize for International Cooperation Germany/Arab World, the Foundation supports German–Arab film teams in documentary film.
Each year, 15 teams are nominated from a large number of applications and are invited to a nominees forum in Berlin. Here they complete several training courses to prepare them for the realities of film production. They participate in workshops on topics relating to co-production and become acquainted with key players in the German film scene.
Ahead of the forum for nominated teams, team-building and training measures are carried out in the Arab world (such as in Amman, Cairo, and Dubai), to which German participants are also invited. As part of Berlinale, each year the jury convenes to select and recommend up to three film teams from all those nominated to give financial support to.
In addition to striving to achieve high production values, the focus of the program is also to encourage cooperation as part of an international team.
