TRAINING / WORKSHOPS: The best of children’s television seminar in Cyprus

The best of children's television, honoured by the internationally-recognised Prix Jeunesse International competition, will feature in a seminar for children's film experts and screenings for children and their parents organised by the Goethe-Institut Cyprus, in partnership with the Cyprus Community Media Centre and the Association for Historical Dialogue and Research. 

The two-day event will take place on December 7th and 8th at the Goethe-Institut Cyprus hall in Nicosia's buffer zone starting from 16:00pm, coordinated by Prix Jeunesse representative Kirsten Schneid from Munich/Germany. 

The Cyprus Broadcasting Corporation (CyBC) is media sponsor of the event.

This is the second time a Prix Jeunesse International screening is being held in Cyprus, aimed at encouraging dialogue, a deeper understanding of quality in children's media, and professional cooperation in the field of children's media between the Greek Cypriot and Turkish Cypriot communities. 

"Children in Europe spend an average of 150 minutes a day in front of the television, but are they watching programmes that are educational, stimulating, and age-appropriate?" said Björn Luley, director of the Goethe-Institut in Nicosia. 

"We want to showcase how children's television can develop intercultural understanding in Cyprus and across the world."
