25th International Film Festival

for Children and Young Audience

10 – 17 OCT 2020

Corona Protective Measures


Our great target is 25th IFF SCHLINGEL taking place physically in Chemnitz. Digital content will complement the programme but nothing can replace meetings and experiences in cinema. In order to grant access to films to as much cineastes as possible we have to do some things different than in the last years:

  • Our screenings take place in CineStar, City Hall Chemnitz, Cinema Metropol and Club Cinema Siegmar. By doing this we ensure that not too much guests are in one cinema at the same time, especially during the school events. Also Zwickau and the Film Palace Astoria are taking part.
  • Accredited guests and German pupils are not allowed to be in the same cinema. In order to conduct the dialog between professionals and students nevertheless we built a video wall where Live-Online-Q&A can take place.
  • Professionals also can not only communicate on the ground but also digitally in scope of INDUSTRY FORUM.
  • The opening & award ceremonies as well as some parts of INDUSTRY FORUM will be streamed live.
  • At the moment there’s no need to wear a mask during screenings if distance is kept. If you leave your seat of course you have to wear a mask.
