Berlinale Generation Juries and Programme

A total of 59 films from 32 countries have been selected for the competition of Generation Kplus and Generation 14plus. They include many works by directors who were guests of Generation in previous years, as well as an extraordinary number of feature film debuts.


The Generation International Jury presents the awards of the Deutsches Kinderhilfswerk valued at 10,000 Euros. Five personalities have been invited to be on the jury: Hong Kong Chinese producer and director Mabel Cheung produced Shui Yuet Sun Tau, last year’s Crystal Bear winner. New Zealand director Taika Waititi won the Grand Prix of the Deutsches Kinderhilfswerk for Boy in 2010. Filmmaker Felix Gönnert from Germany is known at Generation for his brilliantly animated, prize-winning short films. In 2010, Australian director and producer of indigenous cinema Rachel Perkins presented Bran Nue Dae at Generation 14plus. With Jonathan Davis, the jury also includes an expert on European film policy.

Eleven children from Berlin between the ages of eleven and 14 as well as seven young adults have been invited to be on the Children’s and Youth Juries. They will award Crystal Bears for the Best Short and Best Feature in the Generation Kplus and 14plus competitions.


The young protagonists in this year’s films seek confrontation both with others and themselves. “Many of these films explore the inner perspectives of adolescents. In the outside world they encounter guardian angels and anti-heroes, although ultimately it is their own selves that they often come painfully close to,” says section director Maryanne Redpath.

US independent cinema makes a deep and dynamic impact: from tobacco fields in West Kentucky to icescapes in Alaska, young filmmakers tell about coming of age in the USA, at locations remote from the cities. Also real and poetic, between love and country life, is the German feature film Stadt Land Fluss (Harvest) by Benjamin Cantu.

Peruvian director Rosario García-Montero will be concluding a very personal journey: the Berlinale Talent Campus, Talent Project Market and World Cinema Fund were some of the landmarks in making her film Las Malas Intenciones (The Bad Intentions), which will now celebrate its world premiere at Generation. A Berlinale Co-Production Market project has also been selected for Generation: HaDikduk HaPnimi (Intimate Grammar) by Israeli filmmaker Nir Bergman (Panorama 2003: Broken Wings).

Five exceptionally entertaining feature films for the very young come from the Scandinavian countries and the Netherlands. The 32 invited short films complete the programme with their diverse exploration of other worlds – and they do so for audiences of all ages. For Generation, art house starts at the age of four.

British director Tim Pritchard's documentary Street Kids United will have a special screening on the Generation platform. The film accompanies a young South African football team as they train for the “Street Child World Cup”.
