Jana Int. Film Festival for Children & Youth
Nov. 7-12, 2006


The 2006 Jana International Film Festival for Children & Youth will display films on and by children under 19 years of age. Preference will be given to films by children & youth themselves, or with their active participation. The festival invites work by children & young adults, about or for children and youth globally. Already, the festival has received submissions from Germany, Italy, Palestine, France, USA, UK, Croatia, Bangladesh, Sweden, Finland, Colombia, Portugal, Argentina, Australia, Spain, and Serbia.

Video and multimedia Workshops

The festival will be hosting workshops on animation and video, as tools of learning and creative expression for children and youth. These hands-on workshops are directed at children and youth living in communities of limited income.

Photo Exhibit:

The festival will display photos by children that we receive from them. So far, we know of some coming from the AL-JANA project with children of Al-Sikki - Saida, Lebanon.

The AL-JANA active learning team decided in February to start working with a marginalized community on the fringes of the Ein El-Hilweh Palestinian refugee camp in Lebanon, namely the Al-Sikki gathering of displaced refugee families from destroyed Palestinian camps (Nabatiyeh and Tal il Zaa'taz) and destitute Lebanese and gypsy families.
