Last night, the €20,000 Eurimages Co-production Development Award, presented in the framework of CPH:DOX in Copenhagen, went to the project ONLY ON EARTH by Robin Petré . The project will be produced by the Danish company Hansen & Pedersen.

The jury members, producers Rikke Tambo Andersen (Tambo Film) and Heino Deckert (ma.ja.de.) as well as Emma Scott (IE) for Eurimages have chosen to reward “a visually stunning project, that brought us to a place where nature is burning, climate change is evident, but hope is to be found between humans and animals”.

To express its support of and solidarity with the Ukrainian film industry, Eurimages decided once more to hand out a Special Co-production Development Award of the same amount, €20,000, to one of the many selected Ukrainian projects in Copenhagen. The above-mentioned jury which decided to award it to the project RED ZONE, directed by Iryna Tsilyk and produced by Darya Bassel from the Ukrainian company Moon Man was captivated by “this innovative look at the inner lives of women as they go about their daily lives with humour and courage while in the midst of a terrifying war”.

The next Eurimages Co-production Development Award will be presented during the Sarajevo Film Festival at the co-production market of CineLink which will take place on 14-17 August 2023.
