Results of the 23th session

During its 23th session the experts of the Swiss fund visions sud est have decided to support five new projects.

Since its creation in spring 2005 the fund visions sud est has supported 118 projects from different parts of the globe. 96 of these films have already been accomplished and many have been invited to numerous festivals around the world, some being awarded with prizes such as the Golden Bear in Berlin, the Golden Shell in San Sebastián, the Black Pearl Award in Abu Dhabi or the Golden Kapok Award in Guangzhou. From Cannes to Venice, from Busan to Toronto, the logo of visions sud est has been seen everywhere. More than half of the accomplished films have already been distributed and released in Swiss cinemas thanks to the trigon-film foundation. In collaboration with Open Doors at the Festival del Film Locarno and with the Focus at Visions du Réel Nyon, additional projects are elected and supported. Apart from supporting the production of these projects, it is visions sud est's goal to enhance the development of  local production structures and to offer film directors a possibility to intrude into the international film market. The fund visions sud est is a joint initiative by the trigon-film foundation, the festivals of Fribourg, Locarno and Nyon and the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation (SDC). At its last session visions sud est has decided to support four fictional films in production and one documentary in postproduction, with a total amount of 180'000 Swiss francs:
