The Athens International Children’s Film Festival aims to support and promote creative film production for children, teenagers and their families around the world.
The 1st Athens International Children’s Film Festival promises to entertain and move young audiences, offering a rich, interesting and fun screening programme.
The programme is comprised of 75 short and feature-length films, fiction and docmentary, for children and teens aged 3 to 18 years old, originating from over 30 different countries and in over 22 different languages, and is a result of a highly selective process.
The festival takes place annually at the beginning of winter over the course of a 3-day weekend, during which we invite families to explore the world without needing to leave Athens.
