The Royal Film Commission Jordan | Project Market Amman 2018, April 20 to 25

01/02/2018

The Film Prize of the Robert Bosch Stiftung for International Cooperation Germany/Arab World

Call for Project Market Amman 2018, April 20 to 25

Each year, the Robert Bosch Stiftung issues three Film Prizes for international cooperation between young German and Arab filmmakers to realize a joint film project. The prizes, each worth up to 60,000 euros, are awarded in the categories of: short animated film, short fiction film, and short or feature length documentary.

Eligible for the Film Prize are mixed teams of German and Arab filmmakers who are in the beginning of their film career. Furthermore, the film should be produced in both partnering countries, stressing in particular the aspect of intercultural exchange.

To facilitate the team-finding process, Arab directors will be invited to the Project Market Amman to meet German producers.

The Project Market Amman

From April 20 to 25, 2018 the Project Market Amman, introducing the Film Prize of the Robert Bosch Stiftung, takes place in Amman, Jordan in cooperation with the Royal Film Commission – Jordan (RFC).

Up to twenty young directors from the member countries of the Arab League are invited to participate in the Project Market Amman to meet with up to fifteen German producers. The Robert Bosch Stiftung will cover all costs of travel, accommodation and catering.

During four to five days, a diverse program will offer filmmakers from the Arab world and Germany chances to know each other, get introduced to each other’s work, talk widely about the directors’ projects and exchange knowledge and experiences. Joint events and excursions will help intensify the newly acquainted contacts.

The meetings between directors and producers do not necessarily have to result in a partnership but will contribute to gaining experience of an international co-production market and extend the network. In case a team is formed, the first step towards preparing for a joint application for the following round of the Film Prize of the Robert Bosch Stiftung is created.

Who can participate in the Project Market Amman?

Arab directors at the beginning of their career and students or graduates of film and media academies, who are nationals and citizens of any member country of the Arab League, can apply for the Project Market Amman if they have a project in development in one of the four categories (short animated film, short fiction film, and short or feature length documentary). Applicants must be able to communicate in English.
