Children’s Film Academy (GYUFA) is a Budapest based institution that deals with production, education and distribution of children film. Gyufa is member of the European Children’s Film Association.
Gyufa was founded by film director Nóra Lakos in 2013. For now a team of young filmmakers work together in the framework of the Academy. Gyufa organizes film workshops for children and young people to give girls and boys equal opportunities to express themselves via camera, to learn film aesthetics, vocabulary, history, and production techniques. Also Gyufa focuses on making films with mobile. We encourage the new generation to use their mobile as a creative tool for creating art.
Gyufa products online and tv content for children and youth in Hungary.
Gyufa launched the first edition of Budapest International Children’s Film Festival (Cinemira) in April of 2017.
Through production, education and distribution of children films, Gyufa encourages the young film makers and audience to respect their own rights and those of others, to respect cultural diversity and find their own voice by creating audio visual materials.
