Pitch

Der PROGRESS History Summit Pitch - The Great Pitch Session

Der einzige Branchen-Event, der sich ausschließlich der Geschichts-Medienproduktion widmet!

Der History Summit Pitch am Freitag, den 27. Oktober, war ein zentraler Programmpunkt. Produzent:innen aus der ganzen Welt haben ihre Ideen eingereicht für:

  • Konzepte für Filme, Serien und Shorts

Wir haben insbesondere Projekte gesucht, die sich auszeichnen durch:

  • Eine ungewöhnliche, historische Perspektive
  • Diversity vor und hinter der Kamera
  • Und/ oder einen innovativen Ansatz zum Thema Geschichte

Die Auswahl von den nachstehenden sechs Projekten traf ein internationales Expertenteam.

Diese Projekte pitchten vor einem internationalen Fachpublikum und konnten so neue Partner und Finanzierungsmöglichkeiten finden. Über den besten Pitch, der den History Summit Award erhält, entschied eine Fachjury.

1 Million Rosen für Angela – Black Power in der DDR

Angela Davis and Erich Honnecker

Producer:

  • André Schäfer

Directors:

In the 1970s, an enthusiastic solidarity movement for Black civil rights activist Angela Davis emerges in the GDR. She attracts tens of thousands of people during her visits to the country. But all this enthusiasm is deceptive. Co-director Katharina Warda tells this often-overlooked piece of Black East German history from her personal perspective.

Silent War

Producers & Directors:

After Hiroshima and Nagasaki, over 2000 nuclear devices have detonated on Earth, labeled as "tests." This film unveils Prof. Robert Jacobs’ groundbreaking research of the Cold War's darkest secret: all nuclear powers ruthlessly experimented on their people, weaving a decades-long tale of deception and lies with countless victims, in a SILENT WAR.

Silent War. Unveiling the darkest secret of the Cold War.
The Collector

The Collector

Producer & Director:

The film explores a Palestinian visual archive dating back 130 years owned by an Israeli collector and considered to be the largest collection of photographs—never before seen or captured. We document the film director’s efforts to retrieve the archive for the Palestinian people.

The Colour of the Boxing Ring

Producer:

Director:

Since it appeared, at the turn of the 20th century, professional boxing has been much more than a mere question of blows and dodges. It’s been a story of life and death, an issue of politics, of race and pride. And above all, a matter of skin color. One fight summarized it all: Holmes vs Cooney in 1982.

The Srebrenica Tape

The Srebrenica Tape

Producer:

Director:

  • Chiara Sambuchi

In possession of a rare VHS tape shot by her father during the enclave years of Srebrenica, Alisa goes on a journey to uncover the history of her war-torn family, in search of understanding and healing. An intimate search for traces and a journey back to the enclave years of Srebrenica and the massacre of July 1995.

Which Side Are You On

Producer:

  • Ralf Kukula

Director:

How does courage to stand up against a regime arise? This animadoc tells the story of three people caught between oppression and a longing for freedom in the GDR. Their experiences in resistance have made them become the people they are today – still standing up for their ideas of a better society.
