European Work in Progress Cologne 2021: The international jury has been selected

The jury for the fourth edition of European Work in Progress Cologne (EWIP) 2021 has been selected. For the first time in the history of the industry event, not
four, but five top representatives from the international film industry will deliberate on which projects will emerge as winners. Long-time Arte editor and director Alexander Bohr (Mainz) and Clémence Lavigne, co-head of sales and acquisitions for The Party Film Sales (Paris), will be joined by director and film distributor Daniel Melamed, New Cinema Ltd (Tel Aviv). Aranka Matits, founder of the Featurette agency (Amsterdam) and Fabian Massah, film producer and managing director of Endorphine Production (Berlin) complete the 2021 EWIP jury.

This year, up to 30 feature films and documentaries intended for international theatrical release will again be considered. The jury will once again award prizes for the best pitches, including post-production services and publicity work at an international festival worth a total of around 52,500 EUR. Award sponsors again this year are K13 Studios, LAVAlabs Moving Images, ARRI Media, MMC Studios and ZOOM Medienfabrik.
