9th annual presentation of the Wim Wenders Grant 2022
For the ninth time, the Film- und Medienstiftung NRW and the Wim Wenders Foundation have jointly awarded the Wim Wenders Grant. The award ceremony took place in the LAVAlabs Moving Arts studio in Düsseldorf-Flingern on Friday, Sept. 23rd. The renowned grant, which endows a total of around 100,000 euros annually, enables young filmmakers to independently develop their visions for innovative visual storytelling.
The jury, comprised of Petra Müller, Managing Director the Film- und Medienstiftung NRW, Mirko Derpmann, Creative Director of Scholz & Friends Agenda, and chairman Wim Wenders, selected five projects from a total of 30 applications. The deciding factors in their decision-making process were the quality of the material and a convincing visual concept.
