Filmstiftung passels out the coin

$1.4 million handed to 2 made-fors

COLOGNE — Film funding body Filmstiftung NRW has awarded E5 million ($6.5 million) for eight movie and TV projects at its first allocation session this year.

The largest amounts, $1.4 million each, were given to two TV event movies for pubcaster ZDF.

“Dresden” is set during the bombing of Dresden in the last days of World War II. Pic is produced by Teamworx and directed by Roland Suso Richter, who three years ago started the wave of history event movies on German TV with Iron Curtain escape drama “The Tunnel.”

“Neger, Neger, Schornsteinfeger” is the adaptation of Hans-Juergen Massaquoi’s memoirs as a black child in Nazi Germany. Pic is helmed by Joerg Gruenler, starring Veronica Ferres and Axel Prahl.

Actress Maria Schrader snatched $970,000 for her directing debut, “Liebesleben,” based on a novel by Israeli author Zeruya Shalev. Other big-screen projects supported are “Phantome” by Maren-Kea Freese, Wolfgang Murnberger’s kids pic “Lapislazuli,” and international co-production “The Shadow” by Argentine filmmaker Rodrigo Moreno.
