Videotivoli & Media in Finland

Videotivoli in Finland will showcase 500 films made by under 16-year-old children from all over the world this month.
In addition, Videotivoli will arrange a two-day seminar for anyone interested in social issues and media education (including teachers and people working with children and young people) entitled, “Listen to Me: The young people got something to say.”
The seminar will examine social issues and the influence of the media from the point of view of children and young people. Through making films, young people can handle sensitive issues in their lives, and have their voice heard. The seminar will tie in key aspects on the co-existence between Finns and immigrants, as well as life in developing countries.
