My Brother is a Dog to open KinderFilmfest

KinderFilmfest opens with German Premiere
Director Peter Timm’s new family comedy MY BROTHER IS A DOG opens KinderFilmfest on September 24th.

The children’s film section KinderFilmfest goes into its second round from September 24 to 30, 2004. It was brought into being by the festival director Albert Wiederspiel in 2003 and is once again aiming at attracting seven- to twelve-year-old film enthusiasts.
The KinderFilmfest opens on September 24 with a German premiere in the presence of the film’s human and animal leads. The film’s title is MEIN BRUDER IST EIN HUND (translates as ‘My Brother Is a Dog’), the latest production of director Peter Timm. Children as well as adults are bound to see their pets in a different light from then on. Everybody can buy into that experience with a ticket. A series of diverse supporting acts, which are sponsored by our media partner Super RTL, will get our grown-up as well as young guests into the right mood for the premiere.

Approximately eight selected children’s and teen films from all over the world will compete in 15 screenings for the prize which is endowed with Euro 2,500 and awarded by a children’s jury. Among them are animation and feature films from Spain, Singapore, Sweden, Germany and the Netherlands, which all have their German premieres in Hamburg.
Apart from the children’s jury picking the best children’s film, the audience is also asked to vote for their favourite movie of 2004. The awards will be presented during the closing ceremony on September 30 in the UFA-Palast

Grindel movie theatre. All films are shown in the original version with English subtitles and German overvoice.

For the first time this year’s KinderFilmfest comes with a ‘special’: The Swedish film KETCHUP EFFECT, directed by Teresa Fabik is a strong story of the difficult period between puberty and adulthood. With this the KinderFilmfest dedicates one screening exclusively to the teenager generation as target audience – the Film for Teens. The special is shown for the first time at KinderFilmfest in the original version with English subtitles.

Not only the films are invited to the festival but also the respective filmmakers, who are open for a conversation with the audience after the screening.
This time the foyer of the Grindel cinema functions as location for a variety of supporting acts. In ‘film workshops’ children and teenagers are provided with a concrete and live experience of film. Film trades present themselves, animation workshops are offered and the ‘Hamburger Jugendmediale ABGEDREHT’ shows features from its current projects.
