The 8th KUKI + TeenScreen International Short Film Festival for Children and Youth Berlin has once again broke attendance records, with an audience of 6,000 this year. Screenings were held in Filmtheater am Friedrichshain, Passage, Babylon and Il Kino. Most school programs were booked out, resulting in 4,500 guests for those screenings alone.
Highlights at KUKI + TeenScreen included the competition program for children aged 6+, the sold-out TeenScreen competition programs for teens aged 12+ and 14+ as well as the documentary competition. As numerous programs were booked out in advance, repeat screenings were added to meet the demand where possible. Even the new 16+ screenings aimed at teenagers and adults were well attended. The greatest achievement however was the incredibly positive resonance from pupils, students, teachers, children, teens and parents! As one teenage girl said, “Thank you for showing us inspiring films and taking us seriously!”
