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

CONFETTI FOR ALL! is the celebratory title that describes the spirit behind the body of workshops KUKI offers. Diversity, fun and the power of being a self confident individual in a group – these are the things that the KUKI confetti metaphor stands for. In all our workshops throughout the year and during the festival, we wish to reach and include children and teenagers from all kinds of backgrounds, while highlighting the breadth and richness of European and international film culture. Inspiring young people to think critically and find creative and direct ways to participate in society, is the main aim behind the various workshops and festival screenings.

Girls* Riot Workshop

A 5-day workshop for girls aged 15-19 on female identity, media representation, feminism, beauty ideals, stereotypes, bodies, sexuality and anything else the participants themselves find interesting and important. Exciting, informative and encouraging lectures with inspiring mentors & current international short films. After days of film viewing and discussion, the girls curate a short film program that they present in person at the KUKI and interfilm Festival.


WORKSHOP DATES 2023: 14.-18. August 2023

TeenScreen Workshop

The best experts for children and youth films, are of course children and youth!

Every year, KUKI holds a workshop for 12-17-year-olds to select the films for the two TeenScreen competition programs, 12+ and 14+.

KUKI curation workshops are free, well-catered, fun and empowering.



TeenScreen 12+: 31. July - 02. August 2023

TeenScreen 14+: 07.- 09. August 2023

Film Education Workshop for Teachers

Even teachers can learn something at KUKI!

Short films are ideal for school use! To show you just how easy it is, we usually hold a practical and inspirational workshop for teachers in the run-up to the festival. This is held in cooperation with Cornelsen Verlag and led by Mara Leibowitz.


Unfortunately, we have had to cancel this year's workshop, but we are already working on an exciting and innovative new concept for film education training throughout the year.
