CinEuro Prize for the development of cross-border co-productions


CinEuro is a cross-border network of nearly 40 organisations responsible for supporting the film and audiovisual industry in France, Luxembourg, Germany, Switzerland and Belgium. From 2023, the CinEuro partners decided to support the development of co-productions based on stories linked to the partner territories.

To this end, the Région Grand Est, the Film Fund Luxembourg, the Medien- und Filmgesellschaft Baden-Württemberg, the Saarland Medien GmbH, the Ministerium für Familie, Frauen, Kultur und Integration Rheinland-Pfalz, Wallimage,, Wallonie-Bruxelles International and the Ministerium der Deutschsprachigen Gemeinschaft Belgiens have jointly launched the CinEuro Prize.

The aim of this prize is to encourage the emergence of projects dealing with stories, characters or settings that bear witness to the links between the partner territories in all their dimensions (economic, political, geographical, societal, cultural, etc.).

It aims to encourage new ways of looking at clearly identified subjects (steel, war, migratory movements, etc.), as well as themes that have received little or no treatment to date (the inner workings of European institutions, news stories, local imagination, societal or natural phenomena, etc.), whether they are inspired by physical realities (landscapes, buildings, infrastructures), historical facts (personalities, events, etc.) or current affairs.

Its aim is to enable filmmakers to explore and unveil the range of possibilities offered by these themes and to take on board the artistic and intellectual contribution of a cross-border narrative perspective, in order to contribute to the development of a genuine CinEuro signature and enhance its visibility in European and international cinema.

Prize categories and amounts

The CinEuro Prize is awarded annually in two categories for projects in development:

  • Documentary: a prize of €10,000, awarded to a high-quality film, audiovisual or streaming platform documentary project with strong supra-regional distribution potential. An additional €5,000 may be awarded if the Jury is satisfied with the progress of the project after 2 years.
  • Fiction : prize of €20,000, awarded to an audiovisual, cinema or streaming platform project, feature film or live-action or animated series. An additional €10,000 may be awarded if the Jury is satisfied with the progress of the project after 2 years.
