Competition for the German-French Youth Award »KINEMA«

The German-French youth prize KINEMA is being awarded already for the 11th time. Together with the Lower Saxony school cinema project Kinema and the German-French Youth Organisation, the Festival has developed a concept that allows young people from both countries to take an active part in an international festival. A six-member jury made up of young French and German people, aged between 16 and 21, will select a prize-winner from amongst six debut or second films. The German director Gordian Maugg will advise the jury during their bilingual discussions and decisions. The German-speaking competition films SOMMERHÄUSER, DIE TOCHTER and GABI all come from Germany; COWBOYS comes from France and Belgium, PAST IMPERFECT is a coproduction from Belgium, the Netherlands and Denmark and AVA comes from France. The KINEMA youth prize is financially supported by the State of Lower Saxony, the German-French Youth Organisation, the Académie de Rouen in Normandy, the Friedrich-Walz-Foundation, the Antenne Métropole of the metropolitan region of Hannover Göttingen Wolfsburg and the Institut Français from Bremen.
