This year, Cinemira International Children’s Film Festival brings a selection of recent, award-winning European children’s feature films, many among them will be screened for the first time in Hungary.
The programme includes all three of the nominees of the European Film Academy’s Young Audience Award: My Brother Chases Dinosaurs (d.: Stefano Cipani, 2019); Rocca Changes the World (d.: Katja Benrath, 2019); My Extraordinary Summer with Tess (d.: Steven Wouterlood, 2019).
The EFA nominations were chosen in a two-step procedure. An international committee consisting of EFA Board Member Vanessa Henneman (Netherlands) and experts Gonçalo Galvão Teles (director/Portugal), Jacek Rembiś (screenwriter/Poland), Joanna Van Der Meer (BFI/UK) and Nora Lakos (Children’s Film Academy/Hungary, ECFA representative) pre-selected six films. A jury of 13-to-14-year-olds then chose the three nominations. On 26 April, the three nominated films will be screened simultaneously to audiences of 12-14-year-olds in 40 countries.
Cinemira International Children’s Film Festival will screen the films and many more on April 4th and 5th. Full programme coming soon!!
