Eurimages Lab Project Award

For the very first time, this award will be given at Karlovy Vary IFF to the most promising film project. Eurimages wishes to invest in new forms of cinematographic expression, often at the cross-road of other art forms.

Eurimages Lab 2016 will take place on Monday, July 4, as an addition to the traditional
KVIFF Works in Progress

Producers or directors have up to 10 minutes to present each project, which includes two short excerpts from the film. Following the panel, we assist interested visitors of the programme to set up individual meetings with the presenters to get more information about their projects. Excerpts from the presented films will be available in the video library

The award for the most promising project is EUR 50 000.

8 films will be presented from the following countries:

Albania, Armenia, Austria, Belgium, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Georgia, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Russia, Serbia, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, “The former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia”, Turkey

The most promising project will be chosen by the international jury consisting of Karin Schockweiler (Film Fund of the Grand-Duchy of Luxembourg), Kim Yutani (Sundance Film Festival) and Meinolf Zurhorst (ARTE).
