19-02-2018 - Last night, during the Eurimages cocktail held in co-operation with Berlinale Co-Production Market, the Eurimages Co-production Development Award went to the project The War Has Ended by Hagar Ben Asher, to be co-produced by the companies Madants (PL), Match Factory (DE) and Transfax (IL). The jury considered that this project which has a strong structure treated a difficult story in a sophisticated manner. They were particularly impressed by the artistic side of the puppets and their use in the drama and wanted to support this talented director. The next Eurimages Co-production Development Award will be presented at Cartoon Movie on 07-09 March 2018 in Bordeaux (France).
