Camera Zizanio

Camera Zizanio

Type: Regular shortfilm festival
Location: Pyrgos, Greece
Start Month: December


The European Meeting of Young People’s Audiovisual Creation – Camera Zizanio began in 2001 as an initiative of Youth Plan in the framework of the Olympia International Film Festival for Children and Young People activities.

Camera Zizanio shows films created by children and young people under 20 years of age. However, Camera Zizanio is not a Festival. As our name states, it is a “Meeting” which we believe is more important for us to come together, see creations by young people, chat, have fun, make friends and plan for the future.
