The educational side program for young audiences, “junges dokfest – Watch and understand documentary film”, has been presented in cooperation with the Regulatory Authority for Commercial Broadcasting in Hesse (LPR Hessen) since 2009.
The section “junges dokfest” is aimed at school students from the 8th till the 13th grade as well as teachers and will take place before as well as during the festival.
Workshops and screenings will provide young persons an insight into the broad spectrum of documentary filmmaking, they can further practice their competence in understanding film and will write own reviews of selected films of the festival program under the guidance of media educators. The participants will also have the opportunity to engage in interesting discussions with attending filmmakers. Additionally three students will be involved in the Jury for the production grant “A38”.
Participating teachers will be offered special training in advance.
