24 International Film Festival

7 - 13 OCT 2019 in Chemnitz

for Children and Young Audience

This was our 23rd edition!

From 1 to 7 October 2018, the international children's and youth film scene looked forward to Chemnitz and thousands of cineasts from the region visited the local cinemas. More than 230 short and long feature and animation films invited you to discover a colourful world. Therefore the festival is considered as Germany’s largest platform for this genre. At the end of the festival week, expert, children's and youth juries selected the best films out of six competition categories.

All screenings were accompanied by moderators who inform about content and intentions of the films  - together with the present film teams. By running all productions in their original languages, the interest in foreign languages arouses almost additionally. A translation into German will take place live in the cinema. In this way, the protagonists can take the audience on adventurous journeys and give an insight into other cultures and ways of life.

Children and young people can also become active themselves in workshops and projects within the supporting programme of the SCHLINGEL. For professionals, lectures and informative discussion rounds at the "SCHLINGEL Industry Forum" provide best networking opportunities. At the same time, filmmakers can exchange information on current trends and tendencies.

To find the beste movies, the SCHLINGEL team is on the road all over the world to discover the best new films and bring them to Chemnitz. Furthermore SCHLINGEL would like to popularise German productions for young people abroad. The continuous work in this field pays off in SCHLINGEL presentations in China, Israel, Japan, Canada, Russia and Uzbekistan, for example.
