The 2017 Stuttgart Festival of Animated Film (May 2-7) and one of Germany’s largest foundations, the Robert Bosch Stiftung, are calling for project entries for the four-day Arab Animation Program. Designed to bring together Arab and German filmmakers for international co-production opportunities, the winning project of the Forum will be automatically nominated for the Robert Bosch Stiftung Film Prize.
Animation filmmakers from countries within the League of Arab States seeking a producer or co-producer, as well as German producers interested in producing or co-producing a project, are eligible to attend. The Arab Animation Forum will encompass meetings, workshops, consultations and matching sessions with industry veterans.
The application deadline is February 19, 2017. For more information or to submit an application, visit the AAF homepage.
