This is the oldest festival dedicated to creativity for children, but also to children’s creativity in Europe and the world. The festival has the full support of UNICEF and UNESCO and the constant patronage of the President of the Republic of Croatia.

With a tradition of more than sixty years, this manifestation is a trademark of the city of Šibenik and enjoys the status of national importance. The uniqueness of this event is the focus on children not only as spectators and participants but also as active creators; therefore, the importance of holding this festival is necessary. Furthermore, diverse festival offerings make it suitable for various ages, and all generations can enjoy it. The festival’s official program consists of carefully selected theater performances with a rich film, literary, musical, artistic, environmental, sports, and workshop program at more than 20 locations in the old town. The festival is also a member of the art organizations ASSITEJ and UNIMA.

As a central manifestation of children’s creativity, for more than six decades, the International Children’s Festival in Šibenik aims to present cultural works from around the world and immediately promote intercultural dialogue and positivity through creative action values. The goal of MDF is to nurture performances that question many contemporary themes that communicate with today’s times in a way that is close and interesting to children and offers the most diverse theatrical and performance forms.

The purpose of the MDF is to ensure the presentation of artistic achievements for children and youth through international cultural cooperation, which contributes to the improvement of aesthetic and ethical education of children and youth and the development of all forms of children’s creativity and activities. Culture and art are important aspects of youth integration into society. They can significantly contribute to the personal development of young people, their better inclusion in the community, and the prevention of antisocial behavior, which contributes to building a holistic, self-aware, confident, and socially aware person.
