The 1st edition of PLAY – Lisbon’s International Kids Film Festival will be from the 1st – 9th of February, 2014 at the Cinema São Jorge, Lisbon. This 1st edition already has the support of the Municipality of Lisbon, and EGEAC.
Each day of the festival will be organized around four screenings. During the week, the audience will be essentially the school network, and on weekends, young people and children accompanied by their families. There will be discussion sessions, stimulating critical perspective of these new viewers as well as the participation of creators, encouraging dialogue with the young audience, along with workshops for unique experiences.
Throughout the year, the festival will extend to other parts of the country, through specific actions, traveling to regions where cultural programs are scarce.
The relevance of this project relies on the assumption of the cinema experience as an openness to the world, taking the youngest to contact with the Other and experience other realities, so the Festival will be an area of fruitful dialogue between Portuguese and international initiatives in the field of cinema.
