The DAAD (German Academic Exchange Service) is the world's largest funding organization for the international exchange of students and academics. It focuses on the internationalization of German universities, but also provides advice on education and development policy. The offer ranges from a year abroad for young students to doctoral studies.

In cooperation with the JFBB, this year the DAAD's Berlin Artists-in-Residence Program is inviting two filmmakers with DAAD arts and media scholarships to spend a month in Germany to network, present their work and work on new projects.

The following scholarships will be awarded this year:

Amir Movermann is from New York and is represented in the documentary film competition with his essay film Reflections In Synagogue.

Ines Moldavsky lives in the USA and Mexico. Her short film The Men Behind The Wall is part of this year's series Sex. Jewish Positions, which accompanies the exhibition of the same name at the Jewish Museum Berlin.
