28th International

Film Festival

for Children and Young Audience

23 – 30 SEP 2023

That was the 27th SCHLiNGEL edition!




The SCHLiNGEL of 2022 is history and was able to attract a total of 20,000 young and old spectators to the Chemnitz and Zwickau venues. In Cinestar in the Galerie Roter Turm, in the Metropol, in the Opera House, in the Clubkino Siegmar as well as in the Carlowitz-Congress-Center and the Filmpalast Astoria Zwickau, there was a total of 159 films from 60 countries to see - from short films to feature films and animated films, there was something for every taste.

We would like to thank all small and big cineastes, the national and international film guests, our supporters, the press and all friends of the festival.

We are looking forward to next year!
