GOEAST FOR YOUNG PROFESSIONALS

EASTWEST COOPERATION, KNOW-HOW FROM THE PROS AND SOCIALLY ENGAGED FILMMAKING

 

During the festival week, the East-West Talent Lab  offers young filmmakers from the fields of directing and production a valuable platform for networking and further education. Professionals of tomorrow make their first festival and co-production experiences here.
Within the framework of the EWTL, two prizes will be awarded to enable young filmmakers to realize their project ideas: The filmmakers can either apply for the Renovabis grant with a documentary project idea on human and/or minority rights or for the Development Award with film concepts for short fiction and documentary films as well as experimental films and video art.

 

At the Open Frame Award, young filmmakers from Central and Eastern Europe as well as from Hessian film and art schools have the opportunity to apply for the 360° or Virtual Reality Prize, endowed with 5,000 euros, and to exhibit their works in the Wiesbaden City Museum.
