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