The International Children Care Film Festival (ICCFF), edition 2022, Paris


The International Children Care Film Festival (ICCFF) is a unique venture that aims to promote and raise awareness of child and youth protection through and by means of cinema.

Free and open to all, the first edition took place in Paris in July 2021. Its success has led the ICCFF to pursue its commitment with a 2nd edition which will take place from 26 June to 2 July 2022, in Paris.

The ICCFF uses images as an amplifier of information and debate as a catalyst for awareness. In addition to organising an international film competition in Paris consisting of 7 days of screenings and debates, the ICCFF provides off-site programming and film workshops throughout the year and everywhere in France, but also abroad, thanks to a "film caravan" which aims to take the actions of the International Children Care Film Festival beyond its borders.

For the 2022 edition in Paris, there are :

- 963 films received from all over the world from 60 countries.

- 93 international films in official competition, for a total of 35 hours of screening during the 7 days of the festival (26 June - 02 July 2022).

"Pro et + si affinités", season 4: Call for projects 2022 Films Femmes Méditerranée

Film Femmes Médterranée

Films Femmes Méditerranée launches its event Pro et + si affinités, season 4. This event, to be held in Marseille in September 2022, is dedicated to promoting encounters between the women film-makers selected and professional producers also coming from the Mediterranean region.

Who may participate? Any woman film-maker from any of the countries listed in the Call document attached who carries out a project of feature film (whether fiction or creative documentary), as long as she has already successfully completed a film, short or full-length. Please note that film-makers already selected in 2021 may not apply this year.

Deadline to submit an application is set on March 18, 2022.

#KidsDrawPeace4Ukraine Project

Image of the project

Children shaken by Russia's invasion of Ukraine are turning to art to express their concerns as part of the #KidsDrawPeace4Ukraine project organised by the French association Global Youth & News Media

The initiative was inspired by Kleine Kinderzeintung in Austria and News-O-Matic in the United States, the first children's news media to collect this type of art. To date, other media and partners in Argentina, Canada, India, Finland, France and the UK have joined the project. News-O-Matic covers the daily world news in Spanish and English and receives many photos each month via its special application. For a few weeks now, the newspaper has been asking its readers to send in creative works about Ukraine. By the beginning of April, nearly 1,000 children had participated, with one Austrian class going even further, designing more than 200 doves and raising around 400 euros by offering some of their work for donations after a service at a local Catholic church and donating the money to help Ukraine.

Editors and participants are also disseminating drawings through all social media with the common hashtag #KidsDrawPeace4Ukraine.
