SCHOOL MOVIESÙ PRICEthe most famous Oscar night for children. Two extraordinary evenings, in the shadow of the Temple of Neptune, which is the setting for the finale of the Children’s Film Festival. A riot of colors and emotions in the archeological park in Paestum. An enchanted world welcomed 3 thousand baby directors and actors, between fairy tales, fairies, magic hat maker, Snow White, enchanted apple trees, soap bubbles, waders, santimbanchi and baby dancing. A moment of joy and lightness, after the afternoon viewing of 150 shorts produced at the former tobacco dealer Capaccio Paestum.

It was two amazing days, intense, full of energy, I am happy to share these ten years of feelings with all the children and students of Campania, Calabria and Basilicata. I am satisfied – emphasizes Enza Ruggiero – many friends have gone on stage, which I thank one by one for what they have brought to Skolefilm. Healthy energy and panache, cheerfulness, joy, carefree: we need it. So much training, but also a lot of fun. All this would be impossible without the professionalism of Nicola Surace, by my side for the last 8 years. I thank all the team who supported me in the organization with passion, enthusiasm and a lot of commitment. A special thank you to Tiziana D’Angelo, director of the park, for the hospitality and support for our event and of course the municipal administration of Capaccio Paestum led by Mayor Franco Alfieri, who has believed in it for the past 10 years.
