DON’T JUST SIT THERE AND WATCH – »GET INVOLVED!«: This is your opportunity to take part in hands-on projects before, during and after the festival week. »GET INVOLVED!« is about experiencing and understanding films in a participatory way. In its 44th edition the many workshops and events will mostly be able to take place in person.
What is »GET INVOLVED!«?
Our own film selection, our presentation, my film review: The participation of young people is very important to LUCAS. Regardless if you’re a new cinema lover or a passionate cinephile from Frankfurt, the Rhein-Main area or Europe, school classes or festival guests – there are suitable »GET INVOLVED!« projects for anyone who wants to get in touch with the medium of film. You can have exciting discussions with filmmakers on eye level, in which you can explore why and how cinema lets us experience new worlds. »MITMISCHEN!« allows young people to realize many things about themselves and the world by experiencing international film culture in a collaborative setting. LUCAS puts an emphasis on film literacy projects, in which film lovers have an opportunity to explore their own ideas, work methods and decisions whilst also dealing films in either playful, analytical, participatory or intuitive ways.

Which movie is great, which isn’t – and above all: why? Writing reviews means formulating your own opinion in a stylistically confident and convincing way, and this is exactly what the Critics program is all about. At the festival, the participants first view several competition films and then get to the bottom of their content and aesthetic design in workshops with film educator Lara Verschragen. The resulting reviews will be published daily on the LUCAS website.

Young European Cinephiles
The »Young European Cinephiles« are an annually changing group of young film-loving Europeans who curate and present their own film series — and thus bring a young, international attitude to life at LUCAS.
As part of this »Get involved!« project, six young people who have already been involved in projects at other European film festivals, cinematheques or film institutions network in the months leading up to the festival. During LUCAS, the YECs present their film series, which they have curated independently according to a specific theme or genre.
This year, teenagers and young adults from Kosovo, Slovenia and Germany are on fire for an intensive exchange. The theme of the Cinephiles for LUCAS #46: “Identity”!
