Kino for Kids

Kino for Kids 2019 © Goethe-Institut

Learning another language like German opens a window to another world. Films can provide an opportunity to experience cultural diversity, are helping at the same time to develop understanding for different cultures, and are therefore a strong motivator for intercultural learning.
Screening German films for children and teens has been an integral part of our cultural student programs for many years. We are thrilled to embark on the next big adventure, merging the sidebar ‘Kino for Kids’ with the winner of the Goethe-Institut’s School Film Festival.

Kino for Kids’ will be presented as part of the German Film Festival, presented by Palace Cinemas and German Films.

Reccomodation for adult viewers:
In order to celebrate the Bauhaus Centenary, the Goethe-Institut co-presents the documentary Bauhaus Spirit - 100 Years of Bauhaus by Niels Bolbrinker which will be shown in all 7 cities. A special treat for those interested in Bauhaus will be the introductions by leading Bauhaus-experts. The Goethe-Institut has asked academics in Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane to share their expertise when introducing the film.
