    The FilmFestival Cottbus together with connecting Cottbus are once again organizing the Pickastory Audience Logline Award and invite filmmakers to submit a logline for a fresh film idea which has not yet been developed. The audience gets to vote for the logline of the story they want to see on the big screen. More info about Pickastory and eligibility here (entry deadline 24 August, 2022).

    Producers and other industry representatives can apply to attend without a project until 10 October 2022.
