This year a group of teenage girls once again curated the film progam for Girls* Riot! Thanks to the support of Deutsches Kinderhilfswerk, we had the opportunity to set up a workshop dedicated to the lifeworld of young women. Together with the speakers and mentors Mateja Meded and Valerie Schönian the 15-17 year old curators spent an entire week exchanging views on women's rights and identity and discussed gender, diversity and (self-)perception. By the end of the week, the participants had curated their program by drawing from a pool of festival submissions and carefully considered the order in which they should be shown. A training session in presentation and moderation with coach and speake Brenda Jorde before the festival equips the Girls* Riot curators with the skill and confidence to present their program during its festival premiere.
Thanks to the Girls* Riot participants in 2021: Anna, Karla, Malina, Esja, Janine, Anouk and Carlotta!
