Berlinale Generation

Germany

With a comprehensive programme of contemporary films exploring the lives and worlds of children and teenagers, Berlinale Generation enjoys a unique position as the instigator of a convention-breaking young people’s cinema. The section is a home for outspoken young audiences while also casting its spell on open-minded adults. Generation nurtures an open and controversial dialogue with the audience, artists, industry guests and film critics. The selection focuses on films that take young people seriously in their narratives and their cinematic languages. Feature films, documentaries and animations, genre films and works that expand the formal language of cinema compete on an equal footing in the two competitions, Generation Kplus and Generation 14plus.
