Festivals bring about world peace

: Mirna Alhazouri is a 7-year-old girl from Lebanon who has been invited to the 30th International Film Festival for Children and Youth in Isfahan as a jury member. She speaks three languages. Her father, a Christian resistance martyr, was killed in the Battle of Abra in the city of Sidon, Lebanon.

She agreed to a short interview with English Service of IMNA News Agency for the 30th International Film Festival of Children and Youth.

Will festivals affect the universal ties between children?

Yes. For example I personally found new friends in the festival and I feel glad indeed to be in the jury, the festival is very nice.

Have you found any friends on your trip to Iran? 

Yes, I have. They are from Iraq, Syria, and Turkey.

Do festivals impact world peace?

Definitely yes. Films have worldwide messages for peace.

It is highly advised to the children around the world to stand against aggression and always follow their ways, otherwise they do not get success. I wish all children will live together in peace for good.

Would you like to give a message to children your age?

Actually I’d like to remind them not to forget watching films in the cinema, because cinema carries both concept and visual simultaneously which best serves the interests of children, they understand any concept through cinema better and easier.

The sign in the last picture reads: We will never forget them.
