SCREENINGS OPEN ONLY TO SCHOOLS
Our young constitute the public of the future. Because of this the Children’s Section is the perfect opportunity to cultivate in them an appetite for cinema. The six short films included in this section have been specifically selected for children aged 4 to 10, in the hopes that they will allow the children to experience a varied array of emotions and build on the humour, magic, poetry and values present in their young minds.
