VENICE, Italy, Sept. 12 (Xinhua) -- Public organizations and kind people are often giving food and money to street kids, but the more infrastructural way to help them is providing education, Iranian film director Majid Majidi has said to a group of reporters.

Majidi has presented his film "Sun Children" (or "The Sun") in competition at the 77th Venice Film Festival, which was held from Sept. 2 to Sept. 12. His young workmate Ruhollah Zamani, the protagonist in the film, won the Marcello Mastroianni Award for Best Young Actor on Saturday.
