Susanne Prahl director

Susanne Prahl

Susanne Prahl was born in Kiel, (Germany), where she finished high school education and moved to Paris in 1983 to study at University of Nouvelle Sorbonne where she obtained master's degree in literature, arts, and communication.

During her career she continued studies and professional trainings at INA (National Institute of Audiovisual Arts) and obtained a diploma in production and screenwriting. In 1992 the CNC (French Centre National de la Cinématographie) accredited her with professional license of production manager. Based in Paris for a decade, Prahl led a successful freelance career as production manager of movies, documentaries and television productions around the world. Publicis Paris engaged her as casting director for main international advertising campaigns (L'Oreal, Laboratoire Garnier).

For several years she free lanced as event manager at the Cannes Film Festival. Her engagement in Bosnia & Herzegovina started 1992, as production manager of the documentary “Bosna!” which premiered at Cannes Film Festival. In 1995 during the last months of the war, Susanne Prahl moved to Sarajevo as international expert, working on pro bono basis for Bosnian public broadcaster, RTV BiH (today BHRT), fostering European partnerships: (Arte, Canal France International, EBU, BR, ARD, ZDF, France2, BBC) mainly aiming at education component. Her aim was to provide via television a positive, pluralistic vision of the world, especially to children.

From 2000-2003 she was the head of the Sarajevo Film Festival’s Children’s Program and international relations being in charge for VIP guests (i.e. Bono Vox and numerous ‎others). In 2004 Susanne Prahl created the first Kid's festival in Sarajevo, inventing a totally new type of youth event, unique in the world and acts since more than a decade as its director. The pilot project became the largest, most successful youth event in South East Europe uniting children from all backgrounds by tens of thousands. S. Prahl launched various youth initiatives in different countries (Macedonia, Kosovo, Sudan, Afghanistan, Serbia).

Since 2013 the international development of KidsFest model, as a registered international trademark, has been her main professional focus. The new ambitious one day concept launched as a test-run in 2014 in Banja Luka was highly successful, followed shortly after by the first edition in Tunisia (Carthage). The concept of unveiling an innovative, international multi-platform event proved to be an outstanding challenge earning enthusiasm and political, social, cultural achievements.

The second Tunisian edition took place in April 2015 in Sidi Bou Saïd. Premiere edition of KidsFest Bulgaria took place in Sofia in premises of NuBoyana Film studios on June 28th 2015. In preparation and planning phase are first edition of KidsFest Nigeria, and in long term further expansion in few other European locations is planned .
The peak of this international outreach is marked with obtaining highly prestigious UNESCO Patronage for 12th Kid's festival Sarajevo.
