The Children and Adolescent International Film Festival of Athens returns fully adapted to the current (due to pandemic) living conditions, presenting its program online from 14 to 22 November.
This year’s event will be hosted by the site www.athicff.com where even more young and old friends of the event in Greece and Cyprus can watch the movies for free.
With the financial support of the Ministry of Culture and Sports, the donation of the Stavros Niarchos Foundation and the collaboration of the Urban Non-Profit Company Kallisti, the festival presents an expanded program for each family, enriched with new themes aimed at children from 2 years up to adolescence, but also to parents who want to remember their own childhood.
Through original and award-winning feature fiction films and documentaries, everyone can travel around the world, from France, Japan and the USA to Mexico, Nepal and Mongolia and meet new cartoon heroes and more cultures.
Part of the festival (31 short films) will be accessible to people with difficulty in understanding, autism and mental disability. Through the easy2read language which “translates” the texts making them more understandable, the entire festival site becomes accessible to the above groups.
