with the kind support of the LIONS CLUB KAUFBEUREN

We are delighted to be organising a programme for primary school children in Kaufbeuren again after 2019 – for the first time in cooperation with the oldest short film festival in Bavaria, the Bamberger Kurzfilmtage.

Children are the cinema-goers of tomorrow, and we want to enthuse them for cinema culture. We offer a variety of topics suitable for the target group in a colourful mix of live-action and animated films.

After the screening, we invite them to an exchange of views and the young audience can vote for their favourite film.
