Filmfest Emden-Norderney 2010

The International Filmfest Emden-Norderney, which takes place from 2nd to 9th of June, is one of Germany’s most nationally acclaimed and internationally recognised film festivals. With over 100 films on 7 screens it is primarily a major audience festival for its around 22,000 visitors. In addition, Emden is increasingly developing into a highly-regarded meeting place for numerous representatives of the German and North-West European film industry. The main focus of the programme is on current film productions from north-western Europe. Due to its extensive programme of new British and Irish films, the International Filmfest Emden-Norderney has also come to be regarded as a showcase for these productions in Germany.

nordmedia as a member of North Sea Screen Partners will use this year's Festival as an ideal presentation platform. On Thursday, 3rd of June nordmedia will invite producers and Festival guests to a small reception to introduce the NSSP-project. The aim is to promote the North Sea region as a unique film location and upcoming media region.

Prizes (totalling €31,500) will be awarded over the course of the Festival film competitions, with the audience deciding on the winners. The Screenplay Award (€17,000) will be decided on by a jury of experts cooperating with the Adolf Grimme Institute.

Five nordmedia-funded films will also be shown at the Filmfest. Click here for more information.
