DFC I Can Fest, Rome 2019
Children from over 40 countries around the world poured into Rome at the end of November 2019 to celebrate the ‘I CAN Children’s Global Summit’!
More than 2,500 of these young superheroes, aged 7 to 17 years old, were the protagonists of this inspiring four-day event filled with celebration, creativity, and sharing, which culminated in a special private audience with Pope Francis inside Vatican City’s Aula Paula VI Hall.
This summit was the largest all-faith, international gathering of children coming from over 40 countries filled with the I CAN MINDSET who design REAL solutions and create a REAL positive impact on society.
This was a 4-day event happening at 13 different locations in Rome at the same time. We had to manage to capture the event at all locations without missing the important moments. This means, managing all the resources available to us in terms of equipment and crew members. We had hired some local camera persons who also helped us as travel guides. Traveling using the local transportation was a challenge due to communication barriers since the locals didn’t speak english.
