225 films and XR works from around 60 countries, for one week in Leipzig. From 8 to 15 October, we were celebrating our 66th festival edition with numerous world premieres, film treasures from the archives and films for young audiences.

Each programme combines animated short films about amazing and curious events and new documentary films about the banal and the extraordinary, all of which make the world of children and young people tangible. We show five programmes for five age groups:
Unless otherwise stated, our film programmes are generally aimed at adults over the age of 18. For film-specific notes on violent or potentially traumatising content and depictions (Content Notes) as well as flashes of light that may trigger seizures in people with visual sensitivities (Photosensitivity Warning), please see the respective film pages.
