The online platform created by the festival (www.indiejunior.com) will allow the organization of short films sessions in schools, according to different age groups, with an enrollment by interested teachers being enough.
This year IndieJunior will feature more than 50 films that incorporate notions of freedom, ecology, family and art, in a program that equally weighs in on the fun and educational character of cinema.
Highlight for the films ‘Alice Júnior‘, Gil Baroni (Brazil), about a transgender ‘youtuber’, ‘Fritzi – a revolutionary tale’, by Ralf Kukula and Matthias Bruhn, a German animation that recounts the story of the fall of the Berlin wall through the eyes of a child, and ‘Bom dia Mundo!’, another French animation by Anne-Lise Koehler and Éric Serre, on ecology and environment.
When cinema is allowed to return to cultural rooms, IndieJunior will also show Henry Selick’s ‘The strange world of Jack’, in a choice of singer Manuela Azevedo in the section ‘My first film – Revisiting the classics’, and will make a cine-concert by violist José Valente and with some of the most entertaining films in the history of cinema.
