The best movies are on PLAY!

A careful selection of short and feature films will be shown at the festival, where the aim is to encourage creativity, activate critical thinking and stimulate aesthetic sensitivity.

For children between 1 and 13 years old.

The mission of PLAY’s educational service is to help educators and teachers in the education of the gaze, highlighting the moving image as an essential tool for learning about ourselves and the world.

Each session has a support sheet.

All classes receive a proposal for exploring films in the classroom with a summary of each film watched and suggested questions, which allows them to continue working in the classroom and explore topics as relevant as friendship, being different, sustainability or the world around us.
