Fest of Fests, an Athens-based network for Youth Film Festivals, Film Education Organizations, and Film content-related Institutions from all over the world, launches a new project. The digital KIDS for KIDS is a service addressing children who are into filmmaking. This service will present audiovisual content made by children and will organize an annual award and a Summer Youth Film School. In the run-up to the implementation of this service, now three inquisitive webinars are organised.
This year Kids Kino Industry and Cinekid for Professionals joined forces to launch Producers LINK, a newly established programme for emerging producers of children’s content.

The tension is rising among film colleagues… Looking forward to meeting again on the international festival scene!

In a country with continental dimensions like Brazil, with huge cultural and geographic differences, a project that started two decades ago has now become an important mirror of childhoods from around the world through film narratives. The Florianópolis Children’s Film Festival celebrates its 20th anniversary edition with a free online programme, bringing to the screen the richness of Brazilian culture and how it’s dialogue with the rest of the world.
This year, the 63rd Nordic Film Days Lübeck (3 – 7 November), a festival with a wide selection of films and a great support of young talents, will be a hybrid festival, both in the Lübeck venues and online.
