Film Festival

GENERATION – Premiers and Repetitions

Since 1978, the Berlinale has devoted a section to children and young people: Generation. In two competitions, Generation Kplus and Generation 14plus, discoveries from state of the art world-cinema and on a par with young people are presented and the most outstanding of these are awarded the Crystal Bears.

Generation integrates children and youth into the festival’s film-aesthetic discourse. At the same time the section is a place for encounters between people of all ages. Discussions in the cinemas offer young audiences, filmmakers and professional guests an opportunity to share their enthusiasm and discovering new perspectives through a critical approach to film.

New in 2013 : The launch of a special series devoted to the cinematic story-telling of Indigenous peoples worldwide: NATIVe – A Journey into Indigenous Cinema. The programme will introduce audiences to the milestones of Indigenous filmmaking and includes features, documentaries and short films.
