International Film Festival SCHLINGEL is looking for films "Made by You"
The International Film Festival SCHLINGEL is expanding its programme for children and young people. For the first time, self-produced films will be presented on the screen during the festival. Children and young people up to 18 years of age from Saxony may participate. The festival is looking for fictional short or animation films with a length of up to 3.5 minutes. The film should have been produced in the last two years. School classes, video companies or trainees in media professions can also take part. The application deadline is 15 July 2018.
From 1st to 20th August 2018 the submitted productions will be presented to the public in two age categories (up to 5th grade & from 6th grade) on the SCHLINGEL website. Here you can vote for the best movie. The ten most popular films in each age category will be shown at the 23rd SCHLINGEL Film Festival in Chemnitz on October 3, 2018. Every filmmaker can present his or her work to the audience. A jury of experts will decide on the three first prize winners.
The aim of the project is to encourage children and young people to actively deal with the topic of "film". Moving images are not only an important cultural asset, they also shapes our ideas of the world. Consequently, dealing with this is a central point in the modern media education. Only those who know how to analyse films are able to use this tools during the reception in a qualified and reflected way.
