Film Fun in Bed

Jeff the film microbe wants to give all children an opportunity to enjoy the Youth Film Festival.

Film Fun in Bed is an online platform which was set up for sick children who are physically unable to attend the festival because they are in the hospital or recover at home. This online project takes place during the festival period and we screen all short films in competition and the opening and closing feature film. Each film has an online introduction made by former children’s jury members or festival team members. Children can log in on our website and watch all the films but they can also vote online and they are responsible for the Film Fun in Bed Award for best short film. Here we focus on a very qualitative approach rather than to obtain a quantitative goal. Cooperation with Bednet and different hospitals make it possible to reach as many children as possible.

In 2017, the Film Fun in Bed-award went to Jonas and The Sea

You can also work with film yourself. Learn about special effects or make your own movie. Just visit Filmlab and get started!
