Get to know the film projects by young people from the creators! Teenagers present their screenplays at the Junior Pitch Forum!

The Cinemira International Children and Youth Film Festival is organizing the Junior Pitch Forum for the first time, with the aim of showcasing what topics concern young people, what films they think are of interest to their own age group.

The Hungarian National Film Institute’s Fast Forward Program and Cinemira held their Junior Script Lab over the summer, where adolescent participants were able to develop their film ideas into screenplays with the help of professionals for three weeks. 8 of the completed works were accepted to the Junior Pitch Forum, where the creators can present their film plans in front of a professional and a children’s jury.

The grand prize is decided by the children’s jury. And the film professional jury will provide feedback on each project.
