The project, funded by Germany's Federal Ministry of Transport and Digital Infrastructure, invited young people of two different age groups (11-14 and 15-18) to make creative short films and to publish them on youtube and other social media channels.

"The young film makers interpreted the topic in very different ways, but all the contributions were creative and ambitious”, says Mike Maruk director of the popular German youth movie "5 Freunde" (Five friends).

The winner film within the category 15-18 years "Am I on the right way?" deals with the question of what will be after graduating from school, a topic which bothers young people of that age. Within the 11-14 years old category the films "No limits" and "Finally Free", show how easily and extensively youth can use their bicycles on their ways through the city.
