Six local pix share in $3.6 million kitty

COLOGNE — Germany’s federal film funding body FFA has slated 3.2 million euros ($3.6 million) for the support of six local productions, including pics by Sandra Nettelbeck (“Mostly Martha”) and Berlin 2002 fest Silver Bear winner Andreas Dresen (“Grill Point”).

Nettelbeck snagged $670,000 for “Sergeant Pepper,” while Dresen received $450,000 for “Willenbrock.” The largest single amount, $900,000, went to the sequel of the animated 2001 box office hit “Little Icebear,” directed by Thilo Graf Rothkirch and Piet de Rycker. Some $560,000 each went to East German military comedy “NVA — Manoever Schneeflocke” by Leander Haussmann, and Sven Unterwaldt’s “Seven Dwarfs,” featuring comedian Otto as well as Nina Hagen and her daughter Cosma Shiva. Christian Alvart nabbed $450,000 for “Antikoerper.”
