Germany: presentation of the Distribution Aid Award
Welcome has picked up the Distribution Aid Award offered jointly by Unifrance and the MFG to support the distribution of a French film in Germany.
At a ceremony held January 27 at the French Institute in Berlin in the presence of Philippe Lioret and Vincent Lindon, Welcome German distributor Arsenal Filmverleih GMBH was presented with a check for €20,000.
