The Cinemira KIDS International Children’s Film Festival, featuring a wide range of sold-out events, closed with an awards ceremony over the weekend. The Golden Squirrel Award for the Best Short Film for Children from Hungary went to the animation entitled Papp Laci, directed by Ervin B. Nagy.
The Cinemira KIDS International Children’s Film Festival was organized for the fourth time this year as a competitive festival, with prestigious juries of professionals awarding the best films with the Golden Squirrel Award and, as an inevitable part of the event, a Children’s Jury deciding the fate of the festival’s Grand Prize. In addition, a selection of short animated and live-action films for 4-6, 7-9 and 10-12-year-olds was screened every hour, and there was also a great interest for the discussions on filmmaking and acting.
