Competition and Awards 2019

Competition

In the competitions, LUCAS puts its focus on outstanding, international productions of children and youth films, including all forms and genres. A total of 16 feature films, as well as a selection of short films will be competing for the coveted LUCAS-awards in the sections 8+ and 13+. In the newly added section 16+ | Youngsters, five more films will be competing for the LUCAS Youngsters Award.

The feature films have a minimum duration of 59 minutes and haven’t had their release in German cinemas. A selection committee pre-screens the latest outstanding productions from all over the world in order to put together a program for the sections 8+, 13+ and 16+. Our main focus lies not on premieres but on the highest level of quality!

LUCAS has acquired a notable reputation in recent years with its short film competition. From the best international submissions of up to 30 minutes in length, a selection committee puts together several competition programs for sections 8+ and 13+, all of them German premieres.
