Since 2013 the foundation CCFYD has been coordinating with the Magic Lantern Film Club to introduce children between 6-12 years to the world of film. Showings take place several times annually in Zugdidi and Rustavi and are presented by professional actors and experts.
On 27 February 2016 the Magic Lantern Rustavi club held a special screening at the International Scout Centre Rustavi. For the first time in the history of the Magic Lantern programme there was a showing of Georgian short films. There were many difficulties to overcome (e.g. Georgian cinematography is excellent but most film are not in DVD format), however finally we managed it! Children love the Magic Lantern programme but it was all the more interesting because we showed Georgian films. – Giga Omanadze
