“Outstanding Films for Children” is a nationwide funding model created by public broadcasters, regional and national film funders and representatives of the film business and politicians. The aim is to increase the quantity and quality of children’s films, which are not based on a brand or bestselling novel, but offer original and valuable stories for children from 6 to 12+ years set in the here and now.
All partners meet once a year for a round table. They assigned Förderverein Deutscher Kinderfilm e.V. (German Children’s Film Association). It is an independent non-profit association founded in 1978, which represents the lobby of children’s media, organizes qualification workshops and networking events for professionals.
