The Oulu International Children's and Youth Film festival has established itself as a premier showcase for Nordic and international children's and youth cinema. It was the first of its kind in Northern Europe. The competitive main section - with maximum 15 films - offers a wide range of genres for children from 3 up to 13. The Festival's Growing Pains section leads us to the world of the coming-of-age and adult audience. The Finnish Survey presents new Finnish production and it is a forum for the local professionals. The Kaleidoscope programme brings far-away countries near to the local audience. Besides the main sections the festival features retrospectives, children's classics, documentaries, etc.
Newspaper Kaleva's Prize is given by a Children's Jury, while the CIFEJ Prize is awarded by an international professional jury.
Oulu International Children's and Youth Film festival is also a home for seminars on media literacy, various exhibitions and animation and game work-shops for children and teachers. Festival organizers intend to show that high-quality children's film production does exist; the duty is to find distributors for them and let them circulate all over the world.
The Oulu Film Centre is responsible for the management and organization of the Festival.
