School Screenings

Learning another language like German opens a window to another world. Films provide viewers with an opportunity to experience cultural diversity and also develop an understanding of different cultures. They 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. 'Kino for Kids' will be part of the German Film Festival, presented by Palace Cinemas and German Films. This year we are fortunate to have secured a diverse program with a focus on science and astronomy.

New in 2020 are double features, showing two films on the same day for a similar age group. The 'Kino for Kids' school screenings will be shown in the following cities: Adelaide, Brisbane, Canberra, Hobart, Melbourne, Perth and Sydney.

Due to the outbreak of the Corona Virus (CONVID-19) the German Film Festival including the 'Kino for Kids' school screenings will be rescheduled to 2021.


Age recommendation: The films screened in the Kino for Kids sidebar are part of a cultural festival and exempt from classification. They are recommended for viewing either by a general audience, in particular by children (comparable to a “G” rating) or by persons under 15 with guidance from parents or guardians (comparable to a “PG” rating).

Please find more information at the website for each of the films.
