Impressions of our daily work
BerlinaleJust like usual also this year SCHLINGEL was on board when it was time to look out for the newest productions at the 65th Berlinale in February. As one of the organisers of the “Meeting of the Children’s Film Scene” in the representation of the federal state of Saxony within the Federal Government the IFF SCHLINGEL assured for a felicitous reception, at which inspiring conversations were held and new project ideas could be made. The evening was crowned with the presentation of the ECFA-Award 2016, which went to the Belgian-French coproduction BIRDS OF PASSAGE.
Montreal & New YorkAt the 19th edition of the FIFEM in Montreal there weren’t only numerous guests but also head of SCHLINGEL Michael Harbauer and director Norbert Lechner, whose film "Fortune Favors the Brave" was officially introduced at the 20th SCHLINGEL last year. Now he had its international debut in Montreal.
Also the 19th edition of the New York International Children’s Film Festival took place this year and - like the FIFEM - it offered the possibility to examine new films for the 21st SCHLINGEL more closely. Beside this there was time for networking.
