Georg Georgi

Fiction Jury

Georg was born and raised behind the wall in Jena, GDR.
After his career as a professional ballet dancer, art director, music manager and model agent - he started working on his lifetime mission – working with talents in film.

He's been "married" for 23 years to DAS IMPERIUM TALENT AGENCY (D.I.T.A.), a talent agency which now represents 200 rising key talents from more than 30 countries & 3 international directors/scriptwriters.

Together with his longtime friend and Berlin flat mate - Swedish best seller novelist & film producer Micke Hjorth they bought an old hotel in Alentejo, South Portugal, which they want to transform into a special kind of an artist residency called SPACESHIP CERCAL DO ALENTEJO & parallel he founded and develop together with Katharina Schwarz - ex-manager of SEHSÜCHTE Festival – which is one of the biggest student film festivals in the world – a new kind of a festival called ALENTEJO FILM AND SURF EXPERIENCE Festival.

As he packages and consult international movie and TV series projects, it was a kind of logical step to started to develop a bunch of international film & series ideas on his own... of course in collaboration with artist friends of him because he sees filmmaking as a clearly collaborative process of a bunch of artists.

ZONENPUNK is the first & most advanced project - a feature film project he developed together with Austrian scriptwriter/director Paul Poet. The project will be produced by Majade Film Germany, Ulrich Seidl Film Austria and executive produced by Fredric King (SOUND OF METAL by Darius Marder).

YOU ARE NOTHING will be his first international mini-series & 202FREE is another hybrid serial FORMAT that revolves around a group of subversive activists who erase their social identity to figure out how to become a scratch in the paint of a system with the freedom to be nobody anymore....

He is the father to two daughters and lives between Berlin & Almograve/Longueira (South of Portugal).
