The past decade has seen a boom in the efforts of a new generation of Arab filmmakers bravely documenting these times of social and political upheaval. The Film Prize of the Robert Bosch Stiftung supports German-Arab film cooperations between filmmakers and producers working jointly on a project. The ten nominated projects from various Arab countries are introduced and excerpts from the projects screened, followed by the announcement of the winners of the 2018 Film Prize. Three prizes of up to EUR 60,000 are awarded in each of the following categories: documentary, short fiction and animation. The ceremony opens with the screening of the 2014 winning short film Manivelle – Last Days of the Man of Tomorrow, followed by a Q&A with director Fadi Baki and producers Niklas Hlawatsch and Bernadette Klausberger.
