SCHLINGEL presents itself in Tel Aviv


From today until Saturday SCHLINGEL International Film Festival presents itself at the 12th International Children’s Film Festival in Tel Aviv.

The delegation headed by festival director Michael Harbauer accompanies both of the scriptwriters of the German production “Ente gut! Mädchen allein zu Haus” (“Fortune favors the brave”) directed by Norbert Lechner, which was produced within the framework of “Der Besondere Kinderfilm” an initiative by the Mitteldeutscher Rundfunk MDR (Central German Broadcasting) and further partners to promote the creation of original children’s films in Germany. The film was first presented as a work-in-progress during the ComingSoon event of the 20th SCHLINGEL in 2015.

The film can be seen in Israel within the international competition. Furthermore three other German filmmakers and children’s film experts (scriptwriter Katharina Reschke and Oliver Schütte, as well as Dr. Markus Görsch, head of the funding department with MDM) contribute to several creative workshop and industry events focusing on topics such as script development, production processes and the funding of children’s and youth films.

As a member of the ECFA (European Children’s Film Association) jury, Michael Harbauer will decide on the best European production in the program. The presentation is supported by the Mitteldeutsche Medienförderung MDM (Central German Media Fund) and the Saxon State Chancellery.

The close partnership with the Tel Aviv Children’s Film Festival originates from 2015 when SCHLINGEL presented a German Focus as part of the celebrations of the 50th anniversary of German-Israeli diplomatic relations in collaboration with Goethe Institut and the Israel Film Fund which promotes the production and dissemination of Israeli films both in and outside Israel.

The 21st SCHLINGEL in late September will also present recent Israeli productions at the CineStar in Chemnitz.

SCHLINGEL has been presenting children’s and youth films from its “Focus Germany” section for several years already and presented itself in countries such as China, Japan, Canada, the Philippines, Russia and Uzbekistan. The aim of these efforts is to popularize German film with the young audience abroad.
