I’ve been teaching screen acting and filmmaking for children since 2011. I believe here at Fimjatszo we’re creating valuable, exciting films from a fresh perspective, which honestly represent how children and teenagers see and experience everyday life.

During the past 10 years of my career I’ve worked with children many times. At Filmjatszo the children can creatively collaborate on each other’s film ideas and develop them together. Because of this, it’s very enjoyable from them to belong to this community.

I’ve got introduced to Filmjatszo in 2015, through the participation of my son. I loved it here from the beginning because I soon realized that Filmjatszo is a community where children can learn the basics of filmmaking and storytelling in a fun way. Here, the smart-phone technology is a creative tool and children use it in order to create lasting works, to create something that will make them truly proud.

Sári is a documentary filmmaker, director and editor. Currently she’s working on her first feature-lenght documentary.

I joined Filmjatszo in 2016. I think it’s very important to help develop the visual perspective
from a young age. The children use their own stories during the workshops which strengthens the feeling of acceptance toward each other, and helps them to express their feelings and also their problems.
