The Nipkow Programm is a unique fellowship programme designed for international film and media professionals to develop and refine projects in Berlin through an “à-la-carte” curriculum tailored to meet their individual needs and aspirations. In addition to one-to-one mentoring, fellows attend bespoke training seminars on various aspects of packaging, promotion, sales and new technologies. Whether they are working on a feature film, documentary, series, animation or trans-media project, the emphasis of the programme is on project development, with the ultimate aim of initiating international co-productions and promoting their worldwide distribution.
- Over the last three decades the Nipkow Programm has established an extensive international network of film and media professionals, paving the way for ever more creative co-productions and partnerships.
- Since its inception back in 1992, NIPKOW has supported a myriad of feature films, documentaries and animation productions, resulting in a multitude of international award-winners.

To date women make up 269 of the total 653 fellowships awarded, a figure representing 41,2% of the whole. This emphasis on diversity has meant that the Nipkow Programm has been a consistent force for change by advancing the role of women in front of and behind the camera.
