With SCHLINGEL all around the globe
Our Reception at the BerlinaleEvery year, national and international filmmakers, distributors, actors, festival organisers, journalists and producers get together at the Berlinale to discuss current trends in the European children's and youth film scene and to initiate new projects and cooperations. For the third time the industry meeting took place at the Representation of the Free State of Saxony in Berlin. More than 400 guests attended the event during the evening.
The 7th ECFA-Award (Prize of the European Children's Film Association ECFA) was also presented at the reception. The Award 2018 for the Best European Children's Film went to director Petter Lennstrand for his production "Up in the Sky" and to Robin Jensen for the Best European Doc Award "The Shelter". In 2017, many children’s film festivals hosted an ECFA jury, each added one title to ECFA’s voting list.
