SCREENINGS OPEN ONLY TO SCHOOLS

Extending the age range of the children’s programming, we create the Juniors Section, thinking of those who face the last years of childhood. The main objective of this session continues to be to encourage a love of cinema and the five short films that make up this session are fully adequate for their age. We are sure they will benefit from the contact with narratives in most new cases to them.
