2013 CIAK Junior Youth International Film Festival

CIAK Junior calls upon youth from Europe and around the world to create an audio-visual product from start to finish, covering all phases, and taking part in the production of a short film. Every year, the young participants present films which clearly expresses their concerns, the daily challenges they face, their hopes and their willingness to propose changes which they think need to be addressed so to have a more equitable, peaceful, stable world - in other words, a more livable world.

Four out of the seven short films in competition at the 24th Edition of the CIAK Junior International Film Festival held in Cortina d’Ampezzo from 20-25 May 2013 focused on the issue of bullying in all its forms, in particular over the internet.Philippe Pypaert, UNESCO representative, joined the members of the International Jury to review the films competing in the Festival. A UNESCO special recognition was assigned to the short film which best expressed the mission and mandate of the Organization: “Look at me” (original title “Tiskalu Alaay”) directed by Gily Boraks, produced Lahar NPO-Children’s channel, and presented by Israel.
