Every year our Festival welcomes around 1,000 children to our programme for children and young people. The goal of this section is to inspire young people, with their many and varied media experiences and skills, to get interested in the medium of film and to introduce them to the cinema as an aesthetic and social experiential space.
Thanks to a dedicated committee of teachers who view the films in advance, programmes are created that are both high quality and suitable for classroom teaching. This concrete link to Dortmund schools makes our programme one of the most successful initiatives of IFFF Dortmund+Köln.
Eight screenings show works of all genres and lengths, always geared toward different age groups, ranging from the KITA programme to foreign-language films in their original language for older age groups. Media educators offer introductions and hold film discussion sessions with pupils and filmmakers after the screenings.
Recently, we have also started awarding a prize for the best short film for children, the highly regarded award presented by the European Children’s Film Association (ECFA).
We also now feature a Sunday programme to enable the whole family to enjoy our children’s films together.
The film programme for children and young people is the only Festival section running simultaneously in both Cologne and Dortmund.

After packing her diary with dance tournament appearances in Germany and abroad in her youth, Lisa ditched the disco dance glitter and devoted herself 100% to film. She racked up practical experience during her international master’s degree in film and audiovisual media at Ruhr University Bochum working for cinemas and film festivals in the Ruhr region. After two stints abroad as a student, in France (Université Lille III) and Belgium (Université de Liège), she was a transcriber for the Duisburger Filmwoche documentary festival and took charge of organisation for the doxs! dokumentarfilme für kinder und jugendliche festival for children and young people. Since 2016 she has been responsible for the Films for Kids and Young Adults programme for Internationales Frauen Film Fest Dortmund+Köln, where she highlights current cinematic works for our youngest audience.
»Strong girl and woman characters are permanent fixtures on screen in our Film Programme for Kids and Young Adults. What I like most about my work is giving children and young people the opportunity to venture into both new and old worlds, to experience stories they’ve never encountered before as well as familiar ones, and to discuss ideas with each other and with film-makers about the stories.«
