The UNESCO Fellini Medal will be awarded on 29 May to the movie representing and reflecting best the ideals of UNESCO. This year edition of the Ciak Junior Festival will take place from 24-29 May 2010 in Treviso, Italy.
Since 2001, the UNESCO Venice Office collaborates with Gruppo Alcuni in supporting Ciak Junior - The Cinema made by Children, a creative approach aimed at promoting the future generations (school aged youth) of film actors, screenwriters and directors. Youth are the main users of multimedia technology and youth-oriented media are the instruments of the future.

Ciak Junior is an international TV project which aims at initiating children, aged 10 to 15, to the language of audiovisuals. It encompasses both the making and broadcasting of short films (10 minutes each) written by children and produced by the TV networks of participating countries. Stories written by children are collected within each country, and 1 to 6 maximum are chosen for production purposes. The films are then produced by the participating TV network. The films produced in each country will be made available by each TV network for broadcasting in all the other participating countries.

"Ciak Junior" is broadcasted every year, in parallel to the Festival in Treviso, on Sunday mornings on Canale 5. The films are also broadcasted by the participating broadcasters in all of the countries involved in the Festival. The programme broadcasts the films created annually by Italian schools as well as a Special filmed during the Festival itself.
