KUKI .16 Young Short Film Festival Berlin
12 - 19 November 2023

FBW Special Award

Our FBW jury awards a special prize during the festival: a free submission to FBW - Deutsche Film- und Medienbewertung. If the winning film then receives the rating " Besonders Wertvoll", this can be very helpful for the financing of future projects. Our jurors Hamze Bytyçi, Konstantin Marx and Eva-Maria Schneider-Reuter take up the challenge to watch the wild film mix of all German productions and co-productions from the entire KUKI program.

Konstantin Marx

has been interested in film since he bought his first own camera at the age of 10. Since then, he has experimented with various media formats and is now part of the FBW Youth Film Jury Berlin. He is also involved in the European Film Club of the European Film Academy and various participation projects.

Eva-Maria Schneider-Reuter

is a moderator and film presenter. She works freelance in cinema and at numerous festivals. She works primarily with young audiences and explores the functioning of cinematic storytelling in all her projects, drawing on her background as an actress and storyteller. When she gets to the bottom of a story, she looks very physically at content, cinematic devices, and impact. For her, it all starts with the question "What does this have to do with me?".
