Info

A-FilmTeensFest is an international online competitive festival of audiovisual works made by the young generation, aged 7 to 21, from around the world. It takes place from November 14th to December 5th, 2021 on the platform www.afilmteensfest.com. The festival opening and closing will take place in Prague. We decided on this form of the festival after gaining a great experience with the online screenings of the films from the 1st year of our festival for the schools due to the Covid pandemic.

Audiovisual works will be divided in the following 20 basic categories according to genre and the age of the main creators:

  1. Fiction films - creators aged a) till 10, b) 11 - 14, c) 15 - 17, d) 18 - 21 years
  2. Documentaries - creators aged a) till 10, b) 11 - 14, c) 15 - 17, d) 18 - 21 years
  3. Animation - creators aged a) till 10, b) 11 - 14, c) 15 - 17, d) 18 - 21 years
  4. Experimental videos - creators aged a) till 10, b) 11 - 14, c) 15 - 17, d) 18 - 21 years
  5. Other works - creators aged a) till 10, b) 11 - 14, c) 15 - 17, d) 18 - 21 years

Film fans from all over the world can apply. Films from abroad and the Czech Republic will compete together. The following topics have priority for us: Love (in various forms), Family and relationships, Nature and climate changes, Cyberworld, Christian values, themes against bullying, violence, discrimination, racism etc. The year of production is not important.
