Glashütte Original Jury named for Glashütte Original - Documentary Award 2018

For the second time ever, the Berlin International Film Festival 2018 will present the Glashütte Original-Documentary Award, which was established in 2017 thanks to the support of Glashütte Original.

The Glashütte Original-Documentary Award is endowed with € 50,000, funded by Glashütte Original. The prize money will be split between the film’s director and producer. A total of 18 documentary entries from the current programmes of the Competition, Berlinale Special, Panorama, Forum, Generation and Perspektive Deutsches Kino sections and the special presentation Culinary Cinema are nominated for the Glashütte Original-Documentary Award.
The prize will be presented during the official Award Ceremony in the Berlinale Palast on February 24. In addition to the prize money, Glashütte Original will also provide the trophy, which will be finely crafted in the company’s manufactory in Saxony.

A three-member jury, composed of Cíntia Gil (Portugal), co-directors of the Doclisboa, Portugal’s most important and steadily expanding documentary film festival; director Ulrike Ottinger (Germany); and  journalist, playwright, screenwriter, and filmmaker Eric Schlosser (USA), will pick the winner.
