The 3rd Athens International Children’s Film Festival will be held in a digital format for the first time this year. With a programme for children aged two or older, the festival will take place online from November 14 to 22, and young cinephiles from Greece and Cyprus can watch films for free.
“More than 70 short and feature-length films await our young and older viewers,” said the organisers, “who can watch them online, free of charge, while many beloved activities of the festival will be adapted to suit the online environment to comprise a different yet entertaining and safe experience for everyone.”
The third edition of the festival takes into account the new circumstances that are affecting the educational community and is adapting its educational activities for this school year to ensure the safety of students and teachers. It will present a specially curated programme of school screenings for students in kindergarten, primary school, and those up to the first year of lyceum.
Different kinds of films will be screened, each one adapted to a specific age level. For example, The Trophy Hunter is suitable for children in pre-kindergarten, kindergarten and grade 1. Learning to Skateboard in a Warzone is more suited for pre-teens aged 10 to 12. The full film programme can be found on the festival’s official website: www.athicff.com
“Through original and award-winning short and feature films and documentaries, everyone can travel the world, from France, Japan and the USA to Mexico, Nepal and Mongolia and meet new cartoon heroes and more cultures.”
