Starter Film Awards by the City of Munich
Awarded by the City of Munich since 1985, the presentation of the Starter-Filmpreise has a long tradition. In 2019 for the first time, the event will be held at FILMFEST MÜNCHEN. Each year, three Starter Film Awards of 6,000 euros each are given to artistically outstanding films, particularly those by young, unestablished Munich filmmakers, in order to support the next generation of aspiring, innovative directors.
