Destination: Croatia.


6th Four River Festival, Karlovac, Croatia

Youngsters’ creations from Greece, with Camera Zizanio’s initiative, continue their great journey all over the world. This time, the destination is Croatia and specifically… two film festivals.

Dubrovnik Film Festival 2013, is a festival of youth films from Mediterranean countries, that will take place from October 17 to 20, 2013, in Dubrovnik. The following films were selected:

  • Εlectronically enslaved“, by Christodoulos Kehris.
  • “ΑFΑ”, by students of the Standard Experimental School of University of Athens.
  • “Nikos and Sophie”, created during a film workshop in the frames of 15th Olympia Film Festival and 12th Camera Zizanio.

In the 6th Four River Festival, and international festival with films made by children and youngsters, and was organized in Karlovac (September 11 – 14, 2013), we had one more Greek participation.


Yiannis Ntelis – Smyrillos

It’s about the film that was created by the students of the 15th Primary school of Athens: Our hands are not for hitting.

In Karlovac, the school was represented by Yiannis Ntelis – Smyrillos and Tzina Oikonomou (teachers).

In a few days, we’ll announce who will be the Greek winner of the Media Litteracy Award, in Austria, that will win a trip to Vienna.

Those who want to give themselves the opportunity to experience of a youth festival abroad, they only have to make the first step: to send their films at the 13th Camera Zizanio, that will be held from 30 November to 7 December, 2013.

Maybe the most important is the exceptional friendships among the youngsters. Friendships  that thrive. Read more of this post
