Taoba International Youth Film Festival was a big discovery of Georgia and Tbilisi for all international jurors during all 6 days. The friendships made here will continue at the next editions of all of our youth film festivals.
Within the festival our team of young jurors was introduced to a large range of new experiences ranging from a choice of films that they were able to debate with other members, to local beauty and art. The activities organized by the festival gave our jury the ability to gain new experiences and friendships as well as interesting stories that will remain as lovely timeless souvenirs from the Taoba International Youth Film Festival.
For instance one exceptional story would be when our team of young jurors met the Italian singer and acter Luca Chikovani who is in fact born Georgian. The team had the chance to be a part of a ceremonial dinner with Luca and the rest of the international jury where they were able to meet, talk and essentially make friends with the Italian singer. It came as a surprise when on the last night just as our young jury was ready and packed for their trip home Luca came by to say goodbye and wish them a safe journey back. What an amazing moment.
