Sichtwechsel Film Award
For the first time, FILMFEST HAMBURG would like to honour directors who work in other countries across national and cultural borders and create films with the Sichtwechsel Film Award, donated by the Federal Foreign Office. Both filmmakers who were forced to leave their home countries and also filmmakers, who for artistic or private reasons create films outside their home countries and feel that this new perspective brings enrichment to their artistic work, will be considered. A total of up to twelve films will be nominated from the programme across all sections. The award includes a prize of 10,000 euros and will be decided by an international jury.
