Apart from making videos, each group of young people has made its own short film (sometimes more than one) on subjects that matter to them. All of these films reveals something of their lives, experiences and aspirations for the future.

Children living in our Villages and those supported by SOS Children in the community have attended film workshops in over 20 countries. After learning the basics of film-making, small groups have then produced their own films.
