SEE KIDS for KIDS
digital line of international communication between all children who create audiovisual work on current issues. Encourages the projection of the image created by children and adolescents on issues of modern evolution of humanity.
Today, the young people of Southeastern Europe were called to create and integrate into the SEE K4K digital service images-short films depicting the lives of children and adolescents in communication, entertainment, education, at home, on the street, in school in search of their professional future.
Eleven SE European countries participated in the action (we selected three films from each country): Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia, Cyprus, Greece, Montenegro, North Macedonia, Romania, Serbia, and Slovenia.
Eventually, 33 films were selected and posted on digital service by festivals and educational organizations operating in each Southeast European country. Children and teenagers 10 to 15 years old, participated with short films, lasting 2 to 6 minutes.
Our aim is to exchange practices and strengthen synergies in South East Europe, initially, to develop film and audiovisual education for children and young people through the language of technology and the digital world in which they were born and are familiar with the first steps of their lives. For today’s generation of children, this world is a given.

Who are the beneficiaries:
Generation Z refers to people born between 1997 and 2012. This generation tends to share some foundational characteristics related to the social, economic and political climates present during their formative childhood years. They are characterized as our first ‘digital natives’, because of their native use of technology. Whereas Millennials were considered ‘digital pioneers’, who bore witness to the explosion of technology and social media, Gen-Z was born into a world of peak technological innovation – where information was immediately accessible and social media dominant.
Their characteristics are: Gen Z Is connected, Gen Z is all about technology, change is welcomed by Gen Z, diversity doesn’t even register with Gen Z, Gen Z prefers to work independently, Gen Z wants to be heard!
Some meaningful words regarding GEN-Z: Digital Natives, Independent, New Language, Self-Taught, Challenging, Social Media Persona Vs True Self, Activists, A New Form of Community, Inclusion, Share, Imagination, Global Generation.
