Arab filmmakers are invited to apply to attend Project Market Amman, taking place between 26 and 31 May.
The event will be held in cooperation with the Royal Film Commission - Jordan (RFC), and Robert Bosch Stiftung, one of the leading private European foundations.
Up to ten young Arab directors will be selected to meet with fifteen German producers.
Over the course of four days, the German and Arab filmmakers will be offered a space to exchange knowledge and project details. Travel and accommodation costs will be covered by The Robert Bosch Stiftung.
Project Market is a space to facilitate the formation of German-Arab teams that are then encouraged to apply for the annual Robert Bosch Stiftung prize.
The prize is given to three teams to help them realise their film projects. Each prize is worth up to 60,000 euros, and will be awarded in the short animated film, short fiction film, and short or feature length documentary categories.
Arab directors at the start of their film career, be they students or graduates of film and media academies, can apply for the Project Market Amman through the following link www.onlineprojectmarket.de
The deadline for submissions is 15 April.
