We want to attract attention of as many people as possible towards our gifted children, to involve authorities, people who can assist in development of creative teams.

“I arrived yesterday so my impressions are rather fresh. Being the director and the head of the children film festival, I would like to announce that this festival is great because its main purpose is to contribute to the development of the children creativity.
Such thought has been expressed by media expert Andrii Kulykov, the Head of the jury of the VIII International Children Television Festival “Dytiatko”.
