Camera Zizanio

Ευρωπαϊκή Συνάντηση Νεανικής Οπτικοακουστικής Δημιουργίας

AS THE OLD YEAR RETIRES AND THE NEW ONE IS BORN!

Camera Zizanio wants to warmly thank all our friends for being by our side in this 20th edition in 2020. And specifically:

The young creators from Greece, Europe and the rest of the world who entrusted us with their films and in this way we managed to organize a successful festival in such difficult times.

The educators and the artists who helped the children to use their time creatively and also to send us their optimistic messages through their films.

Our friends, old and new ones, younger or older, who sent us their warmest video messages for Camera Zizanio’s 20th anniversary.

The dozens of children who took part in the Juries and also their coordinators who carried out their mission with absolute success, adapting to the special requirements of an online event.

 The youngsters and the team leaders, from 11 countries, who turned the 10th Mythos Project online edition into an exciting experience. They overcame all obstacles of a distance collaboration and created excellent films.

Along with all of you, we managed to keep the spirit of this “Μeeting”, this great feast of Camera Zizanio. We adapted all the health rules and remained safe. And so, we can look ahead to the future with optimism and confidence. We would like to wish for a sweet and pleasant holiday season and for a brighter 2021 New Year! We hope that we will meet again at the 21st Camera Zizanio and the 24th Olympia International Film Festival, the forthcoming November- December!
