Berlinale and Glashütte Original extend commitment to young filmmakers until 2016
Jury for “Made in Germany – Perspektive Fellowship” 2014 announced
Glashütte Original is extending its co-partnership with the Berlinale until 2016. With the “Made in Germany – Perspektive Fellowship”, the Saxon Watch Manufacturer is also continuing its support of a talented young director from the Perspektive Deutsches Kino section. Conceived for the development of a project, material and screenplay, the €15,000 fellowship is funded by Glashütte Original.
The Berlinale and Glashütte Original will award the fellowship at 11.00 am on January 14, 2014. On this occasion, the press will be invited to talk with the new fellowship holder. The previous winners, Annekatrin Hendel and Jan Speckenbach, will also be on hand to report on the state of their projects. The award ceremony and talk with the press will kick off the Perspektive Deutsches Kino’s press screenings which begin on that same day.
Based on treatments that the directors from the Perspektive 2013 could submit until October 1, a three-member jury will pick the winner of the €15,000 fellowship. In 2014, the jury members will be Katja Eichinger, Frieder Schlaich and Andres Veiel.
