Kuki Film Festival


Years running: 17 (since 2008)

Kuki Film Festival

International Children and Youth Film Festival Berlin.


From its humble beginnings as a children's film section at interfilm's International Short Film Festival Berlin in 2000, KUKI's growing success led to its eventual emancipation in 2008 when KUKI celebrated its first edition as a festival in its own right. Known for its exceptional programming the International Short Film Festival for Children and Youth Berlin is dedicated to presenting fabulous and unusual films that young people would otherwise rarely get a chance to see. From the approximately 800 short films entered to the festival from all over the world, we assemble programmes bursting with entertaining and imaginative films. Carefully selected to suit audiences of varying age groups, the films are organised into programmes for children aged 4+, 6+, 8+ 10+, 12+ and 14+. Each film is screened in its original version and professional actors provide live German voice-overs when required.
