The film garnered buzz at its sold-out world premiere in official competition at Locarno last month, where it won three independent prizes, the FICC/IFFS Prize, the Youth Jury Environment Prize, and the ISPEC Cinema Award.

Co-Production and Co-Financing
Financial Gap? Meet our NETWORK.
To celebrate our 15th year eQuinoxe Europe will intro-
duce a new element into the program to be launched during the 2016 Intl. Berlin Film Festival.
Getting films produced is a long road. Often a minority coproducer or a financial gap needs to be closed to enable a film to go into production. It is our goal to have our writers and producers achieve a strong script as the basis for their film financing and production.
Our aim with this new program element is to give those worthy projects the opportunity to utilize our producer network to help close the gap and find the right partners.
ALUMNI producers may submit their projects beginning October 30, 2015. Only eQuinoxe Europe alumni producers are eligible to make submissions. Accepted will be either a) your current eQuinoxe Europe project or b) a new one. Three to five projects will be selected for the first event. Project Administration/Application fee 250€
The producers of the selected scripts will have the opportunity to present their project to our network producers. The event will be in a conversation atmosphere (less pitching) as the participating producers from the eQuinoxe Europe network will receive relevant project information in advance. Producer participation for event is free.
The intention of this new element is to broaden the eQuinoxe Europe alumni network to enhance the financing potential of their projects.
