Short films made by children
In the program "short films made by children" children express their concerns, their concerns, and dreams, and more broadly how they see the world and their lives. In this way, we want to compose an overall picture of how children live in different countries and continents and contribute to familiarizing children with other cultures and with the concept of diversity.
The films are screened under Greek subtitles
