Kinodvor brings us Kinotrip

Kinodvor brings us Kinotrip

  Text and photo: Kinotrip

Kinotrip is a programme for young people aged fourteen or over, which consists of a film club, an international film festival and events during the year. What is special about it is that it is created by young people for young people. 

A group of young film buffs aged between 13 and 19 holds weekly meetings of the Kinotrip film club. Because this was its first year of operation, the youngsters were faced with a very special task. In addition to programming the first edition of the Kinotrip international film festival, with its eight films and a rich accompanying programme, they also came up with the festival’s name and co-created its visual identity. 

They will also be active in the festival’s promotion and execution. Join them at Kinodvor between 24 and 27 March 2016. The programme consists of films in English, German, Dutch, Italian, Turkish and Japanese, many of which will be shown with English subtitles. You can find a more detailed programme here. Kinotrip’s programme will not end with the festival. With individual events, it will continue as part of the regular programme of Kinodvor, whose mission is to encourage young people to preserve and develop urban cinema-going habits.
