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 .
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.
