The Youth Team

The ICFFCY youth team was created in 2009 during the 6th Children and Youth Film Festival workshops sessions. This group of teenagers, nine of them at the time, made a very nice and original film around the theme of Children’s Rights entitled “Drawing a smile”.

Four of them decided that the experience of filmmaking had to continue. They continued to meet with their coach, and decided to write a script.

In 2011, the script was complete. Casting, shooting and editing was made and The Fish Has Flown Away (link) became a long-term workshop with three main aims: to have fun, to make friends, to learn how to make films.
