The festival will take place at the Cinema Alcione (Via Verdi 20, Verona, Italy) and will be divided in two different programmes:
– the programme 3+, with short films suitable for kindergarten children and children in the first year of primary school;
– the programme 7+, with short films reserved for children in the last four years of primary school.
To allow for continuity of the cinematic experience, teachers will be offered “The hour of Cinema”, a notebook with hints and clues for educational activities and interdisciplinary links connected to the screened short films.
