The Eurimages Co-production Development Award amounting to €20,000 presented in the framework of the Berlinale Co-Production Market went to the project THE OBLIVION THEORY to be directed by Annemarie Jacir and co-produced by Incognito Films (FR) and One Two Films (DE). The jury composed of Tine Klint (LevelK, DK), Luís Urbano (O Som e a Furia, PT) and Els Hendrix (DE) for Eurimages was very impressed by this strong adaptation and relocation of José Eduardo Agualusa’s novel “Teoria Geral do Esquecimento” into Gaza at the time of the First Intifada. Director Annemarie Jacir convinced us with her clear vision and a passion for her story that she will develop with a strong female team and several experienced European co-producers.

The next Eurimages Co-production Development Award will be presented in the framework of Cartoon Movie on 11 March 2021.
8/02/2021 - Last Friday, the very first Eurimages Co-production Development Award of the year presented in the framework of CineMart at the International Film Festival Rotterdam went to the project CORA to be directed by Evi Kalogiropoulou and produced by the company Neda Film (GR). The jury composed of Maria Drandaki, Fiorella Moretti and Pablo Perez de Lema (ES) for Eurimages began by highlighting the quality and diversity of the projects developed both by experienced directors and new talents. After exchanging in a constructive manner, the jury chose to reward a supernatural drama featuring two unexpected female characters struggling for freedom and identity in a unique and colourful industrial setting.
