Giffoni International Film Festival
The Giffoni International Film Festival is one of the most well-known children’s film festivals in the world. It takes place in a small Italian town of Giffoni Valle Piana in Campania, Southern Italy, close to Salerno and Naples. Started in 1971, every year over 2,000 children attend the festival from several countries around the world. During the festival, children and teenagers watch the movies, learn about the filmmaking process, and are called to judge them and award the best ones with prizes. Every year the festival attracts 100,000 guests, directors, producers, and movie stars annually. There will be a lot of activities and labs for the participants and special lessons tailor-made for the group!
"What to Expect"
“I learnt most about how to produce a video in an artistic way, also how to act naturally, how to control master facial expressions and how to make my own video clip. Besides, I also learned how to get along with the others, how to break the ice, overcome my shyness. It’s quite an interesting study experience!”

“I learnt how to produce a professional video in this course, and how to perform is also a part of it. And acting as well, which also plays an important role in video production. The acting practice, I love it, because in the practice of performance, I can feel the charm of it. Besides, acting is a quite deep knowledge, and it’s not that you can just act randomly.
I would say it was an interesting and abundant course, and it allowed us to improve our skills and knowledge. Having lessons with these Italian friends made us feel the culture shock and our difference. We do have different perception, but still, we work together very well!”

“I learnt a lot from this experience: how to manage the camera, how to realize a lens which can make the audience notice the beautiful and feel comfortable.
I will recommend this course to my friends. I think this course is more interesting than the culture courses we have in school. We can learn knowledge both in school and here, but what we can learn here can not be given at school. This course developed our multifaceted skills, it made my vision become more wide and broad. I enjoyed the the video shooting process, how the actors play in front of the camera, how to make audience feel the most comfortable, how to express what the script wants to tell audience.”
