Short film financing and distribution in Germany

Where is the money? Short film financing and distribution in Germany

As a filmmaker or producer, you know about the problems of financing a short film.  And you know that most budgets can’t display the real costs of your work and the work of others. Short films are often made by people who are utterly enthusiastic about their project and who are happy with less than they are actually worth.

 

Unless you are a student (and not even then) it is almost impossible to work with a proper budget or get you short film refinanced. In this year’s panel, we want give you an example of how an animated short could be financed. And we will discuss your options to finance and distribute your short in and outside of Germany.

Anima Night Extended

Anima Night Extended

Loving Vincent + BreakThru Films
Meet the artists behind the movies

This year the Animation Night Extended takes us into the fascinating visual world of Vincent van Gogh. The film Loving Vincent will be shown in Germany for the first time in a special screening prior to its cinema release.

 

This feature-length animated film is based on letters to Van Gogh’s brother and was created using over 65,000 individual oil paintings made in a style emulating the artist’s unique imagery. The story sheds new light on the dramatic circumstances of his life and sudden death from the standpoint of his friends and acquaintances. The film was produced by Gdansk-based BreakThru Films.

 

After the screening, producer Hugh Welchman will provide insights into the film’s complex production process, answer questions and show real paintings included in the film. He will also talk about previous film projects, such as the puppet animation film Peter & the Wolf by Suzie Templeton, which was awarded an Oscar in 2008, and The Magic Piano, which was also Oscar-nominated in 2012.
