Children’s Jury Award

This prize, created in 1998 by the Schleswig-Holstein Youth Minister, is awarded by the NFL’s youngest jury. Children from Lübeck select their favourite festival film for children up to age 12. Since 2011, the prize has been endowed with 5,000 euros. From 2011 until 2021, it has been donated by the Radisson Blu Senator Hotel Lübeck. Since 2022, it is donated by Finnlines.
