This year, FICBUEU broadens the screenings and activities addressed to children, dedicating this time the Twinning Section to “El meu primer festival de cinema”. The session will be reserved to the education centres of O Morrazo, the same way as the Children’s and Juniors sections, while the Galician Schools Gala and activities like the storyteller and Radio BuleBue will be admission free.
Story Telling: The story behind the film, with Olalla González. Friday 14 th – 17:30h. Meeting Point.
Cinema and literature go hand in hand in this activity where Olalla González, a teacher specialized in lecture encouraging, will bring children closer to the different cinematographic genres through literary characters. This storyteller session will show them pirate adventures, make them tremble with fear with monsters and ogres, immerse them in fantasy worlds and make them roar with laughter. As an author, Olalla González has published three illustrated albums with the publishing house Kalandraka: Garavanciño, Chibos Chibóns and Un máis.
Galician Schools Gala. Saturday 15 th – 11:00h. Centro Social do Mar.
The audiovisual as an education method will be the main focus of this event open to the public and presented by Paco Nogueiras. It will offer us the screening of the ten finalists of the Galician Schools Section and the handing of the awards for three categories subdivided in: especial education, pre-school and primary school; secondary education, and faculties and audiovisual schools. The aim of this event is to recognise and give visibility to the great work that is being carried our in education centres regarding audiovisuals, granting value and stimulating the creativity of future filmmakers.
Radio BuleBule. Saturday 15 th – 12:30h. Centro Social do Mar.
The music addressed to the little ones comes to FICBUEU with Paco Nogueiras and his show Radio BuleBule, inspired in the audio-book with the same title edited by Kalandraka. This proposal is an invitation to experience the live radio in a hilarious programme full of humour, dance and songs where we cannot miss the usual sections of news, sports, meteorology or cultural agenda. All this with very thoughtful lyrics and catchy rhytms, encouraging the participation of the public with a fresh style and the elements from the radiophonic field.
Acting workshop. Saturday 15 th – 16:30h. Meeting Point.
The creators of the selected short films of the Galician Schools Section will be able to enjoy this activity. The actor, scriptwriter and filmmaker Nani Matos will be the one showing the participants how the direction of actors and actresses inside the audiovisual field works. It is a workshop that will provide the public with new techniques and procedures that they will be able to apply in their future projects. Nani Matos has directed the short films Dies dei, Flores para Amalia and the multi-awarded Lurna, which has already achieved more than 30 awards.
