As a response to the current situation in Europe and a contribution to integration, this year’s sixth edition of the EFA Young Audience Award again specifically included refugee kids. It was the second time that Berlin participated in the initiative and it was here that the European Film Academy brought together Berlin pupils and “welcome classes” for refugee children. Together they watched the nominated films, discussed them with each other, and, as members of the pan-European jury, voted for the winner. This special event was organised in co-operation with Yorck Kinogruppe and supported by the Federal Agency for Civic Education.

Having watched the three nominated films on today’s Young Audience Film Day, almost 2,000 young cinema-lovers across Europe had the opportunity to discuss the films before electing their favourite. The results were then reported live via video conference to Erfurt (Germany) where German actress and comedian Gesa Dreckmann moderated the awards ceremony. The ceremony was transmitted online as a live stream and will remain available as VOD. EFA Director Marion Döring presented the award to the films screenwriter Lars Hubrich, producer Marco Mehlitz, and the two main actors Tristan Göbel and Anand Batbileg.
