The Children's Film Festival aims to expand the boundaries of creativity for children, establish international cooperation and discover new talents. We want to unite all children and teenagers who love movies, shooting and dream of connecting their lives with this kind of art. We have been going to launch this film festival for a long time and postponed it all the time for various reasons, but now we are ready! It is when the world is going through difficult times that we want to bring a little positivity and concentrate children in a creative direction. Dream and shoot!
