Second call of the year: Seven film projects featuring a lot of green shooting

Reading time

Three feature films, two short films, and two documentaries were approved for funding during the second 2022 call. The total funding volume amounts to 1,281,000.00 EUR. Six of these projects are from South Tyrol/Südtirol–Italy and one is from Germany – most of them are realised as co-productions and pursue green shooting methods.

The crime film DER GEJAGTE (“The Hunted One”) directed by Rick Ostermann sees the return of Tobias Moretti (THE WINEMAKER) as a winemaker with a dark past. A production by good friends Filmproduktion from Berlin, the film is co-produced by Vienna-based SATEL Film and will be shot on location in South Tyrol for 15 of 22 scheduled days of shooting – green shooting intended. Two more feature films receiving production funding from the IDM Film Commission include the family film DIE CHAOSSCHWESTERN FEAT. PINGUIN PAUL (“The Chaos Sisters feat. Paul the Penguin”) by Munich-based blue eyes fiction co-produced by Filmvergnuegen, Pfitsch/Val di Vizze (South Tyrol), KARIBUFILM Produktion, Cologne, Velvet Films, Brussels; Dor Film, Vienna, and MMC Fiction, Cologne as well as Antonin Svoboda’s drama PERSONA NON GRATA by Coop99 Filmproduktion from Vienna and co-produced by Bolzano/Bozen-based Albolina Film.

Moreover, the two documentaries VIVA CUBA LIBRE directed by Matthias Lintner and produced by Helios Sustainable Films and Thomas Perathoner’s ROMANO ARTIOLI – THE LAST GREAT DREAMER by 44 Production were recommended for funding by the commission of experts as part of the second call.

Short-film funding will be provided to the two projects SENZA NOME directed by Davide Grotta and produced by Helios Sustainable Films and DER MAULBEERBAUM (“The Mulberry Tree”) by Albolina Film. The latter, a short film written by Cornelia Schöpf and directed by Cornelia Schöpf and Federico Campana, will be shot on location entirely in South Tyrol. All in all, the funded projects mean approx. 75 days of shooting in South Tyrol.
