Crossing borders and finding common ground is essential both to international relations and filmmaking. The Film Prize of the Robert Bosch Stiftung supports German-Arab film cooperations between filmmakers and producers working jointly on a project. The prize is open to teams made up of filmmakers from Germany and an Arab country and awards three prizes: in the categories of short animation, short fiction film, and short or feature length documentary, with workshops and EUR 60,000 in funding each. We are glad to celebrate the winners and a generation of filmmakers willing to push boundaries together. The ceremony opens with the screening of the 2017 winning short film Tshweesh, followed by a Q&A with the team.
