AWARD CEREMONY: BERND BURGEMEISTER TV MOVIE AWARD
By Invitation only
Every year, the Verwertungsgesellschaft der Film- und Fernsehproduzenten (VFF), the German film and television producers’ royalty distributor, presents the Bernd Burgemeister TV Movie Award as part of FILMFEST MÜNCHEN to honor the producers of exceptional TV movies that deal with important themes or break new narrative ground. Established as the VFF TV Movie Award in response to the special significance and increasing quality of TV productions, it was renamed to honor the leading Munich producer and VFF managing director of many years, Bernd Burgemeister, who passed away in 2008. The Bernd Burgemeister TV Movie Award has a value of 25,000 euros. Since 2017, the two nominees have also received a prize of 2,500 euros each.
