For ITFS 2024 we are looking for young German speaking film-lovers, between ten and twelve to be part of the festival as children’s jurors for the Tricks for Kids short film competition.

Does your child love films and cinema? Then the Kids Jury at ITFS 2024 is absolutely right for them: They get to see and discuss exciting animated short films, and will award a prize to the winning film on our open-air stage during the Tricks for Kids award ceremony, just like the adult juries.

The viewings and discussions of the Kids Jury will take place from Wednesday, April 24 until Friday, April 26, 2024 from 1.30/2 pm to 6/7 pm in Stuttgart. Your child will be part of the award ceremony (with prior rehearsal) on Sunday afternoon, 28 April 2024. The film viewings and award ceremony will be held in German, so they should be fluent in German.

Interested? Simply send an email to our Head of programme, Andrea Bauer at, by March 1st, 2024, in which your child explains why they would like to be part of the Tricks for Kids jury and if there is a cinema or television film that totally impressed them and why.

We are looking forward to your application!
