Literarisches Colloquium Berlin and Robert Bosch Stiftung > Crossing Borders programme > open call
Through the Crossing Borders programme, the organisers fund international research trips by authors, filmmakers and photographers: from China (incl. Taiwan, Macao, Hong Kong), India, Indonesia, Japan and Vietnam, to Germany and from German-speaking countries in Europe, Asia and Africa.
The organisers welcome applications from authors, filmmakers and photographers who intend to gather information first hand, visit authentic sites and dare to forge their own, new perspective. The intended publication may range from literary and essayistic prose works, poetry, photo-text volumes, children’s and young adults’ literature, scripts for documentary and feature films, to radio programs and multimedia productions.
Depending on the destination country, it is possible to apply for research funding of up to €15,000 which includes:
