Α brief report of 15th Olympia International Film Festival for Children and Young People and 12th Camera Zizanio

The 15thOlympia International Film Festival for Children and Young People -with films that drew the admiration of thousands of spectators- and the 12th Camera Zizanio -with youth audiovisual creations that surprised everyone with the new generation’s imagination and expressiveness, were organized in an extremely fertile and creative ambiance.

The surprisingly wish by the youngsters and the oldest to participate in the festival, had as result to continue the events for six more days, due to sold out during the main week of events (1-8 December), with more than 21,456 spectators!

In the hallmarks of this year’s festival, we highlight the declaration of the minister of Culture to proceed with the institutionalization of the festival but also the unstoppable and moving wave of support from thousands of friends, who rushed to support it when it’s funding was threatened.
