Treatment Award


Treatment Award 2019: «Stepping Stone – Time for Change»

Schweizer Radio und Fernsehen (SRF) have joined forces once again with the Zurich Film Festival to launch the seventh Treatment Award Competition. Authors are invited to submit a feature film exposé entitled «Time for Change». The Treatment Award is endowed with a CHF 5'000 cash prize. The winner also receives a screenplay development agreement worth up to CHF 25'000 for the creation of a feature-length cinema or TV film screenplay. The long-term partners primarily created the competition to emphasise the often-neglected treatment phase, which forms an important part of the material and screenplay development process.

A jury will review the submissions and nominate five finalists by mid-September 2019. The five finalists will be invited during the Zurich Film Festival to participate in the „«SRF Writer‘s [email protected] Film Festival», where they will be given the opportunity to pitch their exposés to the Jury. The Treatment Award is conferred during the celebratory ZFF Award Night at the Zurich Opera House on Saturday, October 5, 2019.

Authors are invited to compete for the Treatment Award by submitting a feature-length cinema or TV film exposé entitled «Time for Change». Only participants with Swiss citizenship or principal residence in Switzerland can be accepted.

This year's submission is closed.
