LUCAS presents up to date, international films for young audiences. Outstanding fiction-, documentary-, animation-, and experimental films are part of the four LUCAS competitions. 16 feature films as well as a selection of short films will compete for the LUCAS awards.

Feature films have a minimum length of 60 minutes and were not yet released in German cinemas. A selection committee visiting festivals and important industry meetings chooses the competition films for the sections 8+ and 13+. Our main focus hereby lies not on premieres but on a high level of quality. We accept submissions for the feature film competition only in exceptional cases.
