Another Golden Bear for Eurimages!

The Golden Bear at the 60th Berlinale film festival was awarded to the German-Turkish co-production "Bal (Honey)", directed by Semih Kaplanoglu and supported by Eurimages. This film, which closes his autobiographical "Yusuf Trilogy" following Yumurta/Egg and Süt/Milk and tells the story of a child who learns about the mysteries of nature from his bee-keeping father, also received the Ecumenical Jury Prize. The film was produced by the director in co-production with Germany’s Johannes Rexin and Bettina Brokemper for Heimatfilm. The award of the prize to this talented director is also a reward for the choices made by the Eurimages Fund, which previously supported Semih Kaplanoglu's film Melegin Düsüsü in 2003 before the production of all three films in the trilogy. 

Info for producers

  • Following the decision of the Eurimages Board of Management meeting in 2009 to carry out in 2014 a study on the functioning and results of the Fund, the Olsberg SPI company established in the United Kingdom has just published its report which you will find here. As an independent study, the contents of this document do not bind or commit in any way the Council of Europe and the Eurimages Fund. The Fund’s Board of Management will now study the recommendations proposed by the Olsberg SPI company.

  • From 1 January 2014, the rules for Eurimages Co-production funding have been modified.
