About

Help make our project a reality!

"What Makes The World a Better Place?" Toronto Children's International Festival of Animation and Live-Action Films is intended to showcase short films created by children (6-12 years old) from all over the world and to popularize Children's creativity and Vision in Animation and Film. The Festival is an opportunity for the Children to have their say about the world we are living in and to suggest their ideas about how to make it better. Judged by a panel of Professional Artists as well as Children-filmmakers, the Festival presents "Best Film" and "Audience Choice" awards in four categories: Animated Short films (6-9 y.o), Animated Short Films (10-12 y.o), Live-Action Short Films (6-9 y.o), Live-Action Short Films (10-12 y.o). The Festival takes place in February 2017 in Toronto, Canada during 3 days with two days reserved for the Public Screenings, panels and workshops and with the third day intended for the Awards and Closing Ceremonies. 

Risks and challenges

A proven track record of successfully completed projects is a guarantee that this project will also be delivered on time and within the budget, if funded. Therefore, we need your help to make it happen! Select a perk to get started. Every amount counts! "What Makes The World a Better Place?" 2017 Toronto Children's International Festival of Animation and Live-Action Films is a second Festival since its inauguration in 2016. The main Driving force behind the Festival is a non-profit organization FOCUS School of Theatre, Arts and Filmmaking, which I am Artistically Direct. In 2016 we were joined by POCHEMUCHKA Toronto's Club, ACE After-Four Children's Enrichment Program and Filmberries Productions and the Festival was partially sponsored by FOCUS School, TROYKA, FOX THEATRE Toronto and RADIO MEGAPOLIS. The Festival was a successful Canadian, mostly Toronto Community event. In 2017 we want to make it bigger and better by giving a chance to express their vision and share ideas with everyone to children from all over the world. This Festival is a unique event to say the least, not too many Festivals of such kind are being held in North America, if any. Unfortunately, government agencies don't really support an amateur and students creative activities in terms of funding, even though the funding of such events is the only obstacle and challenge. That's why we decided to reach out to You! Please, help make it happen for our project! That's where YOUR funds will go:
- Rentals venue(s) - 40%
- Marketing, advertising, printing materials - 20-22%
- Video/Sound Engineer, program assembling - 10%
- Kickstarter fees - 8-10%
- Shipping - 10%
- Last minute expenses, contingency - 10%
Thank YOU!
