Young people ages 13-18 are encouraged to apply for the opportunity to fly to San Francisco to participate in the Youth 4 German Cinema program at the 20th Berlin & Beyond Film Festival.
Students will learn the fundamentals of film analysis, film production, and how to network and make connections for future endeavors -- and participation will look great on a resume! Each participant will be provided roundtrip airfare to San Francisco, accommodation and food.
Selected Participants will:
Make a short film at the Youth 4 German Cinema Camp with a guest filmmaker. This film will screen online on the Goethe-Institut youth portal Step Into German.
Present the Youth 4 German Cinema Awards and speak onstage with a filmmaker from the winning film.
Go behind-the-scenes of North America’s largest festival of contemporary German movies, and meet with filmmakers, actors and industry pros.
Attend master classes by film arts professionals.
Walk the red carpet at the festival.
Visit one of the world’s most exciting cities: San Francisco.
