This award aims to promote outstanding German-language screenplays for feature-length animated films. It is accompanied by 2,500 euros in prize money and will be awarded on April 27th by a jury consisting of members of the German film industry.
You’re certainly wondering why we have participated in a contest for animated films. The answer is: Due to the fantasy elements we indeed can imagine “The Dreamlands” to become a full animated feature or a film with animated sequences. Here in Stuttgart we are surrounded by internationally acclaimed animation and VFX studios. So it definitely makes sense to consider such alternative options.
We see the nomination as a recognition of the screenplay’s quality and as a strong sign regarding the progress this project has made so far.
