Objective of the festival

The objective of the festival is to allow children to discover new films, new stories, new visual universes and to give their opinion, to vote for their favorite film.
The festival is also an opportunity for all students to continue school activities at home and stay in touch with the teachers.
Beyond cinematographic and artistic education, the festival aims to affirm the educational dimension of cinema by positioning it in particular alongside literature and painting as a resource capable of accompanying and supporting the set of lessons; it will allow children to view moving images not just as entertainment but as a communication tool.
