European Children’s Film Association ECFA was founded in 1988. It appeals to all those who are not indifferent to high-quality films for children and young people: directors, producers, distributors and world festivals.
ECFA has more than 125 members, consisting of companies and organizations from 36 countries of the world.
Elena Larionova, the Program Director of the Almaty Film Festival, said that the Almaty Film Festival was the first in Central Asia to join the European Children’s Film Association!
The ECFA unites both children’s film festivals and companies involved in creating children’s content.
Within the Almaty Film Festival, in September, the Kazakhstani audience will be shown films that are participants and winners of the ECFA award.
As noted by Ernar Kurmashev, the General Producer of AFF, this event will give a further boost to the development of children’s family films in the domestic film industry, since children film producers will visit Kazakhstan.
