MICHEL Film Festival

Watch some of the year's best international youth and children's films in a festival that runs alongside FilmFest Hamburg.

While international actors, directors and cinema enthusiasts flock to the prestigious FilmFest Hamburg, the city's youngest film lovers can enjoy the latest in kids' and teen cinema at the MICHEL Children's and Youth FilmFest. Kids aged 4 to 16 are invited to watch films from various countries and genres screened in the original language - whether German, English, French, Swedish or even Malayalam. Non-German films are live-translated into German by a professional interpreter. Young presenters introduce the films, actors and directors, and take questions from the audience afterwards. At the end of the festival, a jury of seven kids awards the best entry with the desired MICHEL Film Award.

26 September - 5 October 2024

Various cinemas throughout the city.
