Can Film Funding be consistent?

Lars Henrik Gass and Jascha Alleyne

Host: Florian Krautkrämer

Film funding owes its existence to the wish to compensate the competitive disadvantages of artistic films. In current practices, however, “Quality” only serves to secure economic success. This leads to a complete undermining of the concept of quality. We are generating a report and make considerations for a new model.

Lars Henrik Gass is leading the International Shortfilmdays Oberhausen since 1997. His latest publication is the updated and extended reissue of his book “Film und Kunst nach dem Kino” (Film and Art after the Cinema). Gass regularly publishes texts on photography and film.

The Hamburg lawyer Jascha Alleyne is a specialist lawyer for copyright- and media law. He recently published, together with Lars Henrik Gass, the noteworthy article “Monument des Stillstands” (F.A.Z.) on the occasion of the 50th birthday of the Filmförderungsanstalt (FFA).
