  • Please state whether your submission has already received funding (also if the title has changed in the meantime), and give the name of the funding agency, the financier and the amount funded.

Please submit a treatment (or screenplay, see below) for a feature length fiction film (cinema/TV/pilot for a TV series or screenplay for a video game) in German or English.
