Become aquainted with animated film in a playful way

Age-appropriate programmes are available for families with children, daycare groups and school classes. Immerse yourselves in the exciting world of animated films: with special film programmes or workshops for children and young people. Open-air, in the festival cinemas or at Treffpunkt Rotebühlplatz.

Open-air cinema on Schlossplatz

It’s magic: The Schlossplatz transforms into an open-air cinema thanks to the huge LED screen. With short and feature films for kids and families. Free open-air cinema for everyone. What else do you need but a picnic blanket, family or friends, and a dose of curiosity!

The world of animated film for you to touch and create

Here, children and young people become animators themselves and set pictures in motion. An experience of educational value: the free workshops promote cultural education, stimulate creativity, and introduce participants to the diversity of animation techniques. For those who prefer to play games, one of the games workshops is the right choice. All these opportunities take place at the Activity Area on Schlossplatz.

Animated film workshop

In a full-day intensive workshop, 11 to 16-year-olds make their own stop-motion film with the support of animation professionals, which will be shown on the big screen at the upcoming festival. First, they develop their story, then they animate it and add sound. The next day, they meet film professionals at the Open-Air before the Tricks for Kids award is presented and the winning films are shown.

In cooperation with Kindermedienland Baden-Württemberg

Group fun: For daycare centres and schools
