The festival shares the stories these young filmmakers have told about their local and global communities and their futures. There are 27 languages included in the digital stories and lead educators have worked with young participants (6 – 18 years old) across 25 educational institutions (primary, secondary, community-based complementary) and 9 countries (Australia, Cyprus, England, Germany, India, Italy, Malaysia, Taiwan and Turkey). There is a short, pre-recorded introduction or slides before each film.
The Film Screening was edited by Philip Kapadia. Philip is an Avid Media Composer film editor with experience across television, long-form film, documentary, music video, and online work. Philip specialises in offline film editing and within that, focuses on the art of storytelling. He is currently studying editing and post-production at Ravensbourne University.
