UNICEF Children’s Rights Film Festival
Making films about children’s rights
This year, Partou will be participating for the first time in the UNICEF Children’s Rights Film Festival, together with 70 out-of-school care centres. This festival gets children ages 8 and older thinking about their rights by making a video. In addition to Partou, children from 600 primary schools throughout the country and the Forgotten Child Foundation (Stichting het Vergeten Kind) will also be taking part in the preliminary rounds.
From filmmaker to Oscar winner
The participating children use a special app to create a short video clip on children’s rights based on their own script. The 10 best videos are re-recorded under the direction of a professional film coach and shown at a real cinema, after which one winner continues on to the national finals. During the finals, awards are presented in various categories, just like at the Oscars.
