Here it's all about cooperation again. 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 a screening of the 2017 winning short film The Trap, which enjoyed a premiere at Cannes last year, followed by a Q&A with the team.
