Children and Youth Film Festival

The main component of the Children and Youth Film Festival of Cyprus consists of three parts:

  1. Preparation of the Festival: conferences and workshops are held in which educators and media specialists are introduced to the program, receive relevant information about schedules and activities.
  2. Organization of the festival: schools attend morning screenings with group discussions, coming together on the weekend for bi-communal activities.   The program also includes workshops led by media and education professionals, film-makers, and various artists, marathon weekend and evening screenings followed by discussions with directors, actors and other film specialists.
  3. Follow-up:  classroom discussions and activities are led by teachers at their schools, linking curriculum areas, focusing on relating the students’ feelings and emotions after a screening, exploring various relationships between art and cinema.
