COLOGNE — “Who Is Anna Walentynowcz,” from “The Tin Drum” helmer Volker Schlondorff, is among 28 projects allocated coin by Bavaria’s film funding body FFF Bayern. Total outlay comes to $6.3 million.

The largest amount allocated by the funder, $2.1 million, went to the adaptation of children’s book “Hui Buh, the Castle Ghost,” starring Michael “Bully” Herbig.

TV two-parter “Dresden — der Brand,” about the bombing of Dresden in the final days of World War II, produced by Berlin-based Teamworx, received $1.4 million.

The body also considered documentaries for television. “Filmlegenden Deutsch” recounts the role of Teutonic filmmakers Douglas Sirk, Billy Wilder and Fritz Lang in Hollywood.
