Glass bear

from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Crystal Bear is a Child and Youth Film Award , which annually on the children and youth film section of the Berlin Film Festival since 1994 Berlinale will be given.


The Children's Film Festival (now called Generation ), which was held for the first time as part of the Berlinale in 1978 , is a section of the Berlinale and shows a current selection of international fiction and short films for a young audience and is one of the most important platforms in this area worldwide. The section initially established itself under the name of the Children's Film Festival , during which the Children's Jury Prize was awarded from 1986 and the Transparent Bear from 1994 . The 2004 Berlinale was expanded to include the 14plus youth film competition (for young people aged 14 and over) .

For the Berlinale 2007 the section was renamed Generation . Accordingly, the competitions are now called Generation Kplus and Generation 14plus .

Competition procedure

In the Generation Kplus competition , an eleven-person children's jury awards the Transparent Bears one feature film and one short film. The Transparent Bear in the Generation 14plus competition for the best feature film - and since 2008 also for a short film - is awarded by a seven-member jury of young people. In addition, honorable mentions are given for other good competition entries.
