The_Woman_IMG_559xVAR.jpg

 

At the 27th jury session of the World Cinema Fund (WCF), the juries recommended contributing to the funding of 10 film projects.

Six films from Chile, Argentina, Vietnam, Brazil and Paraguay have been nominated for production funding. In the additional WCF Europe funding programme, the jury has recommended funding the production of a project from Morocco. In the special programme WCF Africa, they have recommended funding a Sudanese project.

Two films have received recommendations for distribution funding: WCF Europe distribution funding for the Chilean film Los Perros by Marcela Said for its release to cinemas in France, Chile and Argentina; as well as WCF distribution funding for the theatrical release of the film The Woman Who Left by Lav Diaz (Philippines) in Germany. 

The latest funding recommendations again include projects by Berlinale Talents alumni, as well as projects that were once in search of co-producers and so participated in the Talent Project Market”. 

Since its establishment in October 2004, the WCF has awarded production and distribution funding to a total of 183 projects chosen from 3,241 submissions from Africa, Latin America, the Middle East, Central and Southeast Asia, the Caucasus, as well as from the countries Mongolia, Nepal, Bangladesh and Sri Lanka. All WCF-funded films produced to date have screened in cinemas and/or the programmes of renowned international film festivals, and are evidence of the initiative’s worldwide success.

 

Production and Distribution Funding

 

The WCF jury made their selection based on 171 submissions from a total of 49 countries. Their funding recommendations amount to 317,000 euros.

The jury members are film scholar and curator Viola Shafik (Germany / Egypt), documentary producer Marta Andreu (Spain), distributor and producer Jan De Clercq (Belgium), and WCF project manager Vincenzo Bugno. For WCF Africa, they are joined by the additional jurors Jahman Oladejo Anikulapo (Nigeria), a journalist, film critic, author and actor; and Dorothee Wenner (Germany), the Berlinale delegate to Sub-Saharan Africa.
