The Berlin Film Festival announced today (Tuesday) that for the first time it will award a prize for Best First Feature. The winner, to be selected by a three-member international jury, will receive a prize of 25,0000 euros ($31,000). The festival said that the prize money was donated by the Gesellschaft zur Wahrnehmung von Film- und Fernsehrechten (GWFF), a society for safeguarding film and television rights. Thirteen films have been selected for the competition, culled from the regular competition, the Panorama screenings, and the Kinderfilmfest. Somewhat confusingly, the festival said that debut films screening in the Forum section will not be eligible since it already awards its own prize for such films.

The quote was also published without attribution of any sort in articles appearing on several websites.
