KUKI .15 Young Short Film Festival Berlin
13 - 20 November 2022

FBW Special Award

A jury with no easy task: Judging all of the German productions and co-productions throughout the entire KUKI program to select one winner! Represented are films from almost all programs, including a workshop film, animations for younger children and insightful documentaries, experimental films and political, feminist short films for youth. Lucky our special jurors, Lisa Haußmann, Canan Turan and Samuel N. Schwarz have heaps of diverse experience! The winning film will receive a free submission to the FBW – Deutsche Film-und Medienbewertung (the federal authority for evaluating and rating film & media). If the film then receives a rating of “particularly valuable” it can be helpful for the financing of future projects.
