Camera Zizanio 2009 – Call for entries


Camera Zizanio ‘09

(December 5 to 12, 2009)


Traditionally, after the end of the school year, the European Meeting of Young People’s Audiovisual Creation, known as Camera Zizanio, entries begin for the great winter feast of young people’s audiovisual expression.

This year, for the 9th time, Camera Zizanio will take place from December 5 to 12, along with the 12th Olympia International Film Festival of Children and Young People, at the hospitable city of Pyrgos, Ilia Prefecture.

Films that are created trough workshops, school teams or individually can take the way to this unique Festival, where young audiovisual creations from Greece, Europe and from the rest of the world will meet…

Of course there are and the summer months for those who need vacations relaxation in order to get inspired.  Please note the deadline for entries: October 10, 2009.

We would like to remind you that Camera Zizanio isn’t looking for masterpieces or perfect works, as its primary emphasis is given to the effort of young people’s audiovisual expression, their attempt to communicate in a more artistic way and the use of new technologies.

There’s no restriction about the subject of the film… but films with fascist, racist, or pornographic matter will be excluded. There’s also no restriction about the means that have been used for the making of the film.

The films that will be selected for the competition sections should meet the following conditions:

–          The films, individual or team work, must be created by children and young people up to 20 years old.

–          The films should be created by children with a little help from the professionals and not the other way around.

–          The duration should be up to 10 minutes.

We would like to remind you that Camera Zizanio is divided into three sections:

  • The Greek Section ( all Greek films will participate… without exclusions)
  • The European Section
  • The International Panorama

At the first two sections (the competitive ones), the films are divided into three categories according to the age of the participants:

–          Category A (up to 12 years old)

–          Category B (from 13 to 16 years old)

–          Category C (from 17 to 20 years old)
