The documentary film “Death and the Maiden” by Yael Lotem (D.O.P: Nicola Hens) has won Best Animated Short at the American Documentary Film Festival in Palm Springs. The award comes with 500$ prize money.
“Death and the Maiden” is one of four documentary films made within the context of our BACK AND FORTH programme.
BACK AND FORTH is organised in cooperation with the Film and Television Department of Tel Aviv University with funding from the German-Israeli Future Forum and Rundfunk Berlin-Brandenburg.
Three of our cinematography students are at CalArts in L.A. right now as part of the Talent Transference student exchange scheme.
Together with CalArts directing students they are preparing three film projects there, which were developed beforehand in cooperation with the scriptwriting students in Berlin and will be shot in L.A.
Talent Transference is funded by the German Programme for Transatlantic Meetings (Transatlantic Programme), which is financed from ERP funds, and by the GWFF.
At the start of May participants in the second year of SERIAL EYES will pitch their projects to selected industry representatives.
Fittingly, an article on developing European television series has just been published in the FAZ: In der Klasse der Mad Men
We are looking forward to working with Sandra Schulberg, American producer and lecturer at Columbia University in the City of New York, who will be coming to the DFFB at the end of the week.
Her workshop will examine feature film financing, international co-production, and U.S. & international sales.
