Organisers of Generations, one of the flagship events of the yearly Berlin in International Film Festival have confirmed the first films of the Generation Kplus and Generation 14plus competitions: Nine short films and nine full-length films, among them are 11 world premieres and eight feature-length film debuts.
The first films confirmed so far hint at a programme that embraces both perceptive assessments of the state of the world as well as fantastical assertions of personal truths – in both content and cinematic language. Among the selection are the feature film debuts of Antonio Bigni, Domien Huyghe, Jenna Hasse, Sofía Auza, Zeno Graton, Carla Subirana and Jow Zhi Wei.
“Generation is excited about cinema that places perspectives and personal experiences of young people at their centre and that allow young audiences to see and envision themselves anew. A cinematic experience that holds up a mirror to a world created by others – and one that acts as a window onto a world that can be possible,” says section head, Sebastian Markt, regarding the first part of the programme selection.
The first year under a new head also looks like it’s finally going to be a year in which the festival takes place in its full glory again: With cinemas filled to capacity and many screenings being attended by the filmmakers offering plenty of possibilities for encounter and exchange – animated by the lively Generation audiences. The leadership change involved creating a new position to strengthen the section’s dialogue with its young audience.
Together with the section head, section manager Melika Gothe will build on the successful work of years passed and set a new focus on film education and cultural participation amid a changing film culture. The complete programme will be announced in mid-January.
