The "Sehpferdchen" ("See horse") has been held since 1998 and has developed into the largest film festival for children in Lower Saxony. It originated in Hanover from the film project with children in the cinema at the Künstlerhaus and from municipal cultural activities in the districts. Based on this it was from the beginning not just cinema but equally a field for projects and activities for a pedagogical employment of film in cultural institutions and schools. First it expanded with alternating cinemas in the Hanover region and since 2004 cinemas in Lower Saxony and Bremen have also been involved. The "Sehpferdchen" conveys film art and the culture of the cinema integrating further media skills. The creative activities include video filming, 3-dimensional design, theatrical productions, jury work, creative writing workshops and online editorial conferences.
