A program of 3 films (Ernest & Celestine, The Other Son and Little Lion) was also presented in many schools in Tübingen, Stuttgart, Rottenburg, and Reutlingen. Highly successful, these screenings attracted 10% of the total number of admissions registered during the festival.
A scriptwriting class by Axelle Ropertand Gabriele Röthemeyer, along with a discussion about the score of The Painting, in the presence of its composer Pascal Le Pennec and Benoit Basirico, a journalist specializing in film music, also took place.

These €20,000 euros are to be used in the marketing campaign accompanying the film's German release.
