BERLIN: The Eurimages Co-Production Development Award, endowed with 20,000 euros, was presented to the project The War Has Ended directed by Hagar Ben Asher, represented by the producers from Madants of Poland, Match Factory Productions (Germany) and Transfax Film Productions (Israel). The prize money is intended as a project development grant from the European film subsidy organisation Eurimages.
The ARTE International Prize also went to The War Has Ended. ARTE bestows the 6,000 euro prize on an artistically outstanding project drawn from the selection of the Berlinale Co-Production Market.
At the 15th Berlinale Co-Production Market, the producers of the 36 selected narrative film projects also meet potential co-producers and financiers. The team received more than 2,100 requests for meetings this year.
