The Baumi Script Development Award, which is endowed with 20,000 euros in prize money, is seeking international screenwriters to submit original work until November 15. 

Martina Baumgartner, Reinhard Brundig (Pandora Film), Petra Müller, and Fatih Akin (“Head-On,” “The Edge of Heaven”) will be judging the submissions. The award pays tribute to the film producer Karl “Baumi” Baumgartner, whose film production credits include “Spring, Summer, Fall, Winter… and Spring” and “Le Havre.” Baumgartner passed away last year. 

Authors must have already produced at least one screenplay, and first-time screenwriters must submit along with a production company. The awards ceremony for the winners will be held during the 2016 Berlinale. For more information, click here
