The Robert Bosch Stiftung will cover all costs relating to travel, lodging, and food. The programme will offer workshops intended to prepare young directors for project development, as well as learning the proper ways of pitching and presenting film ideas to the German producers. At the same time this project will also give German producers a fresh insight into the regions cinematic art landscape.
The one on one meetings between directors and German producers may not result in partnerships, but can help participants gain invaluable experience.
