KUKI Festival

[zapf] TrickTruck

The KUKI Short Film Festival for Children and Youth Berlin has joined forces with "zapf" removal company to offer animation workshops to Berlin schools throughout the year. The workshops will take place in a specially constructed mobile animation studio, inside a giant truck, generously sponsored by our enthusiastic partners at "zapf". It's called the [zapf] TrickTruck!

In 2012, for the very first time, the KUKI Festival held an extra afternoon programme: 90 minute animation workshops in which children created an animated film inside the [zapf] TrickTruck! The finished film was shown on the big screen at the zapf Family Screening on Sunday 18 November at Filmtheater am Friedrichshain.

And now it has become a firm festival tradition to hold an animation workshop during the KUKI Festival in the TrickTruck, parked outside our main festival cinema Filmtheater am Friedrichshain. On 5 consecutive weekday afternoons, different groups of 10 children come and work on the same film with international guest animators. The premiere is celebrated on the last festival Sunday at the (free of charge) zapf Family Screening and all participants are invited to come and present their film in front of a big audience.
