How to Participate

To participate in the Film Prize competition and training program, applicants need to apply as a German-Arab film team.

To find the right team partner for a joint application, the Film Prize organizes project markets in cooperation with regional partners. Arab directors and German producers get the chance to meet and exchange, discuss the director's project and get to know each other. 

German-Arab film teams, who have already found each other elsewhere, can apply directly for the Film Prize.
