State film subsidy supports 21 film, TV projects

BERLIN — RTL Television’s upcoming miniseries “Die sturmflut,” about catastrophic tidal flooding that devastated parts of Hamburg in 1962, is among 21 film and television projects getting coin from Bavarian state film subsidy FilmFernsehFonds Bayern (FFF).

Two-parter, co-produced by Nico Hofmann of Teamworx and Jan Mojto of EOS Entertainment, will draw e800,000 ($955,000) from the $7.66 million the FFF slated for productions in its second allocation meeting of the year Friday. “Die sturmflut” also secured $1.8 million from the Filmstiftung NRW, the state subsidy board of North Rhine-Westphalia.

The FFF is also backing Constantin Film’s “Die weisse Massai” (The White Massai), from Hermine Huntgeburth, about a Swiss business woman who falls for a Masai warrior in Kenya.

Joachim Masannek’s tyke movie “Die wilden Kerle II,” a follow-up to last year’s hit about a little league soccer team, drew $1.25 million.

“Erkan & Stefan: Fettes Merci fuer die Leiche,” the fourth in Constantin Film’s “Erkan & Stefan” franchise starring comedy duo Erkan Maria Moosleitner and Stefan Lust, picked up $955,000.

Animated kids film “Urmel aus dem Eis,” about a creature that hatches out of a prehistoric egg found frozen in an iceberg, drew $835,000.
