At the end of September the International Film Festival SCHLINGEL attracted again countless young and old film fans, professionals, international guests, actors, directors and producers to Chemnitz. From 25 September to 1 October 2017, 159 international productions have been screened - most of them for the first time in Germany. Furthermore, several film teams visited Chemnitz to discuss about the creation process and their experiences on the set. Workshops for kids offered the possibility to gain experiences in dealing with all kinds of camera equipment. The first SCHLINGEL Industry Forum was a perfect platform for all professionals, discussing current developments in the children’s and youth film sector.
