Hubert Bals hands funds to Apichatpong

The International Film Festival of Rotterdam's Hubert Bals Fund has announced US$464,400 for 25 projects in 19 countries, among them Primitive: Uncle Boonmee Who Can Recall His Past Lives by Apichatpong Weerasethakul, which is in the script-development stage.

The Thai indie filmmaker had earlier picked up a cash award for his project from Berlin's World Cinema Fund.

Other Hubert Bals funded projects include Raya Martin's How to Disappear Completely, a digital docu-drama following a group of actors trying to survive in the jungle.

The Hubert Bals Fund will also award 5,000 euros to the best project presented at the Film Bazaar market and workshop at the International Film Festival of India in Goa.
