Since 1994, the Collecting society for exploitation rights in cinematographic works (VGF) has been annually presenting the VGF Young Producers’ Prize to the best film of an up-and-coming producer. An independent panel judges the submitted German feature films according to quality and recognizable audience relevance. The award comes with an endowment with 60,000 euros and is the highest paying prize for up-and-coming producers in Germany. The award money is not appropriated and is intended to strengthen the equity capital of young production companies.
The VGF Young Producers’ Prize was previously awarded during the Bavarian Film Prize ceremony. For its 25th anniversary, the 2018 award will be presented for the first time during the Hof International Film Festival (23-28 October 2018). With this, the VGF Collecting Society emphasizes its commitment and that of the Hof International Film Festival to the support of up-and-coming film talent.
