Arsenal Filmverleih has been awarded the Euros 20,000 MFG/Unifrance Distribution Prize at Tuebingen's French Film Days for Marc Esposito's Le Coeur Des Hommes for release in Germany next March.

In addition, a Special Mention went to Lucas Belvaux's film trilogy of Apres La Vie, Cavale and Un Couple Epatant which will be released by Kool Filmverleih in Germany next year.

The Distribution Prize was established by the Baden-Wuerttemberg regional film fund Medien- und Filmgesellschaft (MFG) and Unifrance in 1999 to support the theatrical distribution of a French feature film or documentary in Germany and boost the film's public profile.

Previous winners include Bertrand Tavernier's Ca Commence Aujourd'hui (Arsenal Filmverleih) and Etre Et Avoir (Ventura Filmverleih).
