The presented films are of a very divers nature, going from archive pieces like Fellini's Amarcord (intended for the age group of 15 – 18 years) to contemporary feature and animated films, different shorter pieces and works made by students of the Academy of Theatre, Radio, Film and Television (AGRFT).
In the first edition of the festival, for example, the bigger part of the programme was of a European productions and only a small number of films – equalled by those from Asia and from South America – came from the United States. There were some more than 50 films, and about a half of these were short ones, culled from the programmes of Anthropological Film Festival of Children and Youth in Ljubljana, KIKI festival, International Children’s Film Festival (HR) and Animateka International Animated Film Festival.
The best film in the competitive section is chosen by the part of the audience aged between 6 and 12 years. The winner in 2015, for example, was the Italian-French co-production Il ragazzo invisibile by Gabriele Salvatores.
Additional screenings in primary and high schools around Slovenia are done together with various film creators and experts, who lead the accompanying lectures and discussion on films. There was also a course and a competition on film criticism for young writers, prepared in cooperation with Ekran, Magazine for Film and Television and Kino! Magazine for Cinema and Cinematic Issues.
