This is also an opportunity for the media to interview authors (Q&A and media).
Inside the festival centre we will hold Mini film – film workshop for children and the youngsters, a free educational programme for children aged 7 to 14, designed to popularize film art with the youngest audience. The aim of Mini film is to encourage creativity, arouse curiosity and, above all, create preconditions for a critical approach towards audio-visual contents being watched. The results of workshops are short films (animated or otherwise) authored by the children participating in workshops. These films will be screened during the closing of the festival. Instructors are young filmmakers, authors, and professionals who have come together around a common idea of doing all in their power to familiarize the future audience with cinema. In 2014, these instructors have clocked over 350 hours of working with participants.
