In its fourth edition, IndieJúnior Allianz International Children’s and Youth Film Festival of Porto returns to Rivoli Theater, Almeida Garrett Municipal Library, Casa das Artes and to the rectory of University of Porto for six days, to present the most creative and original children’s films in the world. From January 28th to February 2nd 2020.
The festival integrates an international competition for feature and short films, with around 50 recent films (fiction, documentaries, animations), watched by three juries (official, schools and audience). Several films competing for the awards are selected by students from pre-school to high school, which are part of the “I programme a film festival!” initiative, organised in partnership with the Parallel Program of the Municipal Theater of Porto. Because at the festival there is also a place saved for classics, we present once again the section “My first film”, with three guests from Porto choosing an important film from their childhood.
Between January 28 and February 3, 2020, IndieJunior Allianz will be a great place to be, a world projected on the big screen where all ideas and dreams come true. Come see!
IndieJunior Allianz’s mission is to give its target audience the opportunity to watch films (short and feauture, animation, documentary and fiction) that do not reach the regular distribution channels, allowing the encounter with new ways of seeing and thinking the world that author cinema offers. The festival also aims to stimulate the national production of films for children and create an enriching environment for its participants, both in the numerous screenings of the festival and in the parallel activities.
