International Film and Audio Visual Festival for Children and Youth
The International Film and Audio Visual Festival for Children and Youth is aimed at children and youth, but it also screens movies made by children and young people. More than 40 countries had participated in the five editions of FICAIJ since 2010. FICAIJ is a non-profit organization that encourages children and young people to love and appreciate independent film as well as motivate new filmmakers from an early age.
Booger is a comedy short film originally made for Tropfest NZ that tells the story of Jason, who while waiting for his father kills time by indulging in that all time boy’s favourite, making a booger ball. But then what? Jason let’s his imagination run wild before he has to dispose of the evidence for his pastime to remain undetected–an act that provides one final source for his personal amusement.
