• New filmic horizons for the young and youngest: The CHILDREN’S FILM FESTIVAL presents international children’s films.

The festival’s extensive history of fostering new talent isn’t just limited to the competition, but also extends to the CHILDREN’S FILM FESTIVAL, which introduces a young audience to the world of cinema and aims to pass on the festival’s fascination for the medium to the next generation. In this section, kids get the opportunity to make their first film experiences and discoveries.

This offer for families spanning ten children's films reflects the clear programmatic line of the festival and offers more than just a film screening for the youngest audiences. Here, together with the educational concept, the contact with the filmmakers is very important: Audiovisual perception is practised in a playful way in workshops and cooperations with schools, attention is trained and the discussion and reflection of film inspired.
