Berlin Today Award 2010: Short Films for the Big Screen
“Straight to Cinema” is the theme for the short film competition of the Berlinale Talent Campus in 2010
Call for entries – Berlin Today Award 2010
The short film competition of the Berlinale Talent Campus – supported since 2003 by Medienboard Berlin-Brandenburg – invites directors from all over the world to submit short film ideas inspired by the theme “Straight to Cinema”. In a digital age where film culture is undergoing fundamental changes, the cinema remains a unique public space, a centre for collective experiences and sensations. The Berlin Today Award theme for 2010 encourages young filmmakers to seek inspiration in the cinema and all its possibilities, and develop a short film for the big screen. The top five film ideas will be realised by five production companies from Berlin and Brandenburg – with support from Medienboard and the film industry.
Berlinale Talent Campus current applicants and former participants, as well as producers from the Berlin-Brandenburg region, can apply until November 25, 2008, to realise a short film project. Talents and producers can go to www.berlintoday.de to access the online application and participation conditions.
15 pre-selected Talents will have an opportunity to present their film ideas and convince producers attending the “Producers’ Meeting” held during the Berlinale Talent Campus 2009 (February 7-12, 2009). Five projects will be selected and have until the end of 2009 to make the final leap toward realisation. The short films will celebrate their world premiere during the opening of the Berlinale Talent Campus 2010. The winner, selected by a jury, will receive the Berlin Today Award 2010.
(Gracias al apoyo del Goethe-Institut Mexiko, el aÃ±o pasado TÃ³xico asistiÃ³ al Berlinale Talent Campus de Alemania, comenzando asÃ una investigaciÃ³n sobre diferentes modelos de conferencias y talleres dedicados a las Ã¡reas creativas. La calidad de este evento es excelente, y les recomendamos a todos los jÃ³venes cineastas aplicar. TambiÃ©n estÃ©n al tanto de la versiÃ³n Latam que se hace en Buenos Aires cada aÃ±o y–a partir del aÃ±o pasado–en Guadalajara paralelamente al festival de cine.)
