ICFFCY presents at CCMC on 26th June at 7:30pm 3 film screenings:

• Drawing a smile (2009) and The fish has flown away (2012)

Two films made by ICFFCY Youth team.

• “Tokka"  ( 2013) The CAT documentary


"Drawing a smile"; "The fish has flown away”: 

In October 2009 ICFFCY during the Children and Youth Film Festival gathered a group of teenagers to participate in a film workshop led by Julie Sandor on children's rights. The first film of the Youth Team, "Drawing a Smile" was made. The film was given The European Youth Excellence Award in Filmmaking of ÉCU 2012.

The great experience of sharing thoughts and ideas through film creation continued until June 2012 when the final project  "The fish has flown away" ended. 

Epic and colorful surrealistic journey of four teenagers grounded into Cyprus, The fish has flown away is the result of unexpected collaborations between youth, intellectuals, workers, migrants... in one word: People of Cyprus. The fish has flown away has been supported by the EU representation in Cyprus.



This documentary tells the story of the Cyprus Artefact Treasure in action – CAT. The CAT has enabled cross curriculum communication and promoted peace by implementing media education through the lens of archaeological heritage. Children and adults from Famagusta and Paphos had the opportunity to interact, create different media product illustrating and bringing alive their common culture; building therefore long-lasting friendships and true dialogue between communities. This project has been promoting successfully strategies for conflict resolution, intercultural dialogue, respect of human rights and peace.

The Cyprus Artefact Treasure in action project - CAT is a media education project run by a team of teacher from the Greek and Turkish Cypriot communities; under the umbrella of the ICFFCY non profit association in collaboration with CCMC, Antamosis association and Mağusa Kültür Derneği. CAT has been supported by the BSP of the American embassy.
