Have you visited other parts of Europe and wondered what it might be like to live there? Imagine growing up in a snowy climate or somewhere you couldn’t move freely.
This free film programme is specially selected for young people interested in seeing different stories from across Europe. What does Milica have to do to get across the Serbian border? Will a young boy get to see Europe’s biggest dam? Watch these wonderful stories and take part in a number of film-related activities, with a facilitator on hand to create an enjoyable space for discovery and discussion.
Created as a lead-in to the EFA Young Audience Award which IFI Education & Creative Europe Desk Ireland – MEDIA Office will host in May 2018.
