The 2021 Film Prize Nominees
Eight German-Arab film teams from Egypt, Germany, Iraq, Jordan and Lebanon have been nominated with four documentaries, one short animation and three short fiction films for the
2021 Film Prize Edition.
The selection showcases extraordinary emerging talents and tenacious female voices with powerful projects that reflect on a wide range of social and political topics in Arab societies, offering a fresher perspective through very personal stories.
Each nominated team receives a Development Prize of 10,000 euros and has the chance to win one of two Best Pitch Awards, each endowed with 10,000 euros, at the end of the program in February 2021. Until then the teams are invited to a series of online trainings to further develop their projects, their dossiers and prepare their pitch in front of the Film Prize Jury.
