Young SFFF

Young SFFF is mainly addressed to our festival visitors from 4 to 16 years, even though every good children's film is also a film for grown-ups! We are convinced that much more is possible than what's commonly conceived as children's films. You only need to trust young eyes and thoughts. Young SFFF presents cinema from Switzerland and its neighbouring countries and opens the gaze for special stories and unusual makings.

After the screenings everyone can ask the filmmakers to their heart's content and share what they found striking and important. The section's highlights were THE RED TURTLE, ÉRNEST AND CELESTINE and of course the Valais Oscar-winner MY LIFE AS A ZUCCHINI

MIA AND THE WHITE LION

Ten year old Mia has her life turned upside down when her family decides to manage a lion farm in Africa. When a beautiful white lion, Charlie, is born, Mia finds happiness once again and develops a special bond with the growing cub.
