In 2018 the Sam Spiegel International Film Lab in Jerusalem — a programme to promote filmmakers’ projects launched by the Sam Spiegel Film & Television School in 2011 — is presenting the Force-of-Nature Filmmaking Award for the first time. This annual award is conceived to honour extraordinary personalities committed to the development of world cinema.
Berlinale director Dieter Kosslick will be its very first recipient. He will be presented with the Force-of-Nature Filmmaking Award in Jerusalem on July 6, 2018. “A particular concern of mine has always been the national and international promotion and funding of talent and up-and-coming filmmakers. I’m exceedingly pleased to receive this award,” said Dieter Kosslick.
