The best public pitch will be presented with the “coco Best Pitch Award”. The winner is chosen by all of the participants of connecting cottbus. The award of €1,500 sponsered by Berliner Synchron goes to the producer of the awarded project.
The “Midpoint Scholarship Award” is connected to our cocoLab. With the Midpoint Scholarship, we have a strong partner supporting one of our projects in the development of its script.
The Midpoint Award enables one cocoLab project to participate in the Midpoint Feature Launch. The professional script development programme is intended for young and emerging film professionals with first and second feature film projects and professional short films.
The winner of the “coco Best Pitch Award” will also receive the „coco Producers Network Award“: an accreditation to the Producers Network at the Marché du Film in Cannes.
A jury of three film industry professionals will give the “coco Post Pitch Award“ to a project pitched at connecting cottbus. The in-kind prize sponsored by The Post Republic includes post production services to the value of €25,000.
This year we are honoured to have the following jury members in Cottbus: Alexander Bohr (ZDF / arte), Juliette Lepoutre (Still Moving), Michael Reuter (The Post Republic).
