SCHLiNGEL curates programme with six German Films for Shum Bola Film Festival


We at SCHLiNGEL have been organising the Shum Bola children's and youth film festival in cooperation with the Goethe-Institut Tashkent in Uzbekistan for eleven years now. For the first time, the festival is also being held in Tajikistan. A total of six German films will be shown in this context. Director Markus Dietrich, storyboard artist Maike Ramke-Lassahn and Stefan Pfäffle from KiKA as well as SCHLiNGEL festival director Michael Harbauer and Jeannette Süß from the SCHLiNGEL team were also travelling to Shum Bola to accompany the respective productions.

From 17 to 27 April, Shum Bola will be showing German films for young audiences in Uzbekistan on the big screen for the eleventh time. Productions will be shown in the Uzbek capital Tashkent and in Samarkand, among other places. For the first time, venues in Tajikistan have also been included: Dushanbe, Ainij and Khujand. The German films GHOSTS UNDER THE FERRIS WHEEL, CHECKER TOBI AND THE JOURNEY TO THE FLYING RIVERS, THE BLACK BROTHERS and WILDHEART as well as the German-Austrian co-production NEW TALES OF FRANZ and the German-British animated film THE AMAZING MAURICE can be seen there during the festival days, presented by SCHLiNGEL. Markus Dietrich, director of WILD HEART, and Maike Ranke-Lassahn, who created the storyboard for THE AMAZING MAURICE, will be on site at Shum Bola to talk to the audience there. The screenings of GHOSTS UNDER THE FERRIS WHEEL, which celebrated its world premiere at SCHLiNGEL last year, will also be accompanied by Stefan Pfäffle, head of the fiction section at KiKA. In addition to the film programme, young viewers can also look forward to workshops and discussion panels on site.

In addition to the current screenings in Uzbekistan, we have also been guests in Tajikistan over the past few days. Read more about it here.

The presentation of German films at Shum Bola takes place in long-standing co-operation with the Goethe-Institut Tashkent and is supported by the Saxon State Chancellery as well as the Mitteldeutsche Medienförderung MDM and German Films.
