Encompassing Co-production Projects between Germany, Syria and Lebanon

The Jury Announces the Winners of the Film Prize of Robert Bosch Stiftung


Yesterday the Robert Bosch Stiftung has revealed the three Film Prize winners during Berlinale Talents.

The Film Prize for the documentary film project went to the Lebanese-German documentary
Miguel's War by director Eliane Raheb and co-producers Lissi Muschol and Margot Haiböck. The Film Prize for the short fiction project went to Tshweesh (Lebanon-Germany) by director
Feyrouz Serhal producer Stefan Gieren, whereas the Film Prize for the animation film project went to Four Acts for Syria (Syria-Germany) by directors Waref Abu Quba and Kevrok Mourad, and producer Eva Illmer.

This year's Jury encompassed; George David, Director of the Royal Film Commission of Jordan; Johannes Ebert, General Secretary of Goethe-Institute; Doris Hepp, Commissioning Editor of ZDF/Arte, Producer Roman Paul, Founder of Razor Film Production Berlin; Hania Mroué, Director of Metropolis Art Cinema Beirut; Director Marianne Khoury, Co-manager of Misr International Films Cairo and Florian Weghorn, Programme Manager of Berlinale Talents.

Before the start of the Berlin International Film Festival, the jury met during two days in the Representative Office of the Robert Bosch Stiftung in Berlin, where each nominated team of filmmakers pitched their project's idea within 15 minutes to the Jury. The Nominees have been previously prepared for this pitch during an intense training with experts at the Nominee Forum, which was held last November and December.

Since 2013, the Film Prize of the Robert Bosch Stiftung for international cooperation targets film co-production between young German filmmakers and their partners from the Arab World, encouraging intercultural exchange. Applying for the competition starts annually in May and closes by the end of July. The three winning films will benefit from the value of the Film Prize of the Robert Bosch Stiftung in funding the film project.
