This festival, which was held in the auditorium on the second floor of the Okinawa Prefectural Museum & Art Museum and was entirely run by children who decided the best picture award, was a landmark event. This was the first time that the memorable event was held, in response to a call by Director Takako Miyahara (Kukuru Vision representative). This festival, which has much in common with the Generation category of the Berlin Film Festival and the Kinder Film Fest Kyoto, centered around the theme of "Trusting Children, making them think, and leaving it up to them." Three works of a nature to inspire children were screened, and “FLYING BODIES,” the work that most captured the children's minds, was awarded the Grand Prix.
