FILMS FOR DEVELOPMENT

Founded in April 2012, WELTFILME is a Berlin based non profit organization that aims to intensify the dialogue between the northern and the southern world using the medium film.

For this purpose, WELTFILME initiates film projects in developing countries and supports the works of local film makers – from script development through to postproduction.

The stories created in the process are presented to a large audience via cinema, television, social media and with traveling film busses, both in the country of origin and in Germany.

Furthermore the films are submitted to international film festivals.

With each project WELTFILME builds a network of film-makers and media artists in developing and transition countries with the objective to create a local film industry which is internationally integrated and economically sustainable.
