Is the FFA a Jewish organization

8 scripts: 6 treatments / FFA awards 255,000 euros for script funding

16.06.2015

In its second meeting this year in Berlin, the FFA script commission, chaired by Christine Berg, sponsored eight scripts and six treatments. The commission received a total of 57 applications including contradictions.

The script project TWO TO ONE, Natja Brunckhorst's latest project, was funded with 25,000 euros. The author and actress, who received the German Film Prize in 2001 for her screenplay WIE FEUER UND FLAMME, is writing with TWO TO ONE on a true story about the time of the fall when citizens of the GDR were able to exchange their money at a ratio of 2: 1. The development of the treatment for the planned comedy was also supported by the FFA last year. The commission also won over the script project ZU MANE MÄNNER, the new joint project by Julia von Heinz and John Quester (HANNAS REISE). The planned adaptation of the bestselling novel of the same name by Lily Brett, which is supported with 25,000 euros, is the autobiographical story of the New York author and describes the relationship between father and daughter, who on a trip to Poland on the trail of Jewish life in the early 1990s find each other. The Berlin author Philipp Weinges (ALLEIN UND FRAUEN, ERKAN AND STEFAN I + II) receives a grant of 25,000 euros for his script project ALL WISSEN IS ALSO SHIT. The focus of the comedy is a young BND employee who also uses the possibilities of the secret service for her private happiness - and thus risks a lot.

The treatments, each funded with 10,000 euros, include LOVE INTERRUPTION by author and director Sonja Heiss (including HEDI SCHNEIDER STECKT FEST), the latest project by DIE WOLKE author Marco Kreuzpaintner SCHANDE and WELCOME ADE by author Robert Thalheim (including AM ENDE KOMMEN TOURISTEN ).
