What is Cinephone Kids?
Cinephone Kids is born from the commitment of Cinephone Film Festival in collaboration with town halls, schools and institutes so that students can train and prepare themselves in audiovisual communication.
Through courses and workshops, students acquire different knowledge and skills on the audiovisual language, reaching to be able to make a short film from scratch with mobile phone. Each of the children learns to be directors, writers, light specialists, actors and actresses, editors, etc.
There have already been three editions of Cinephone Kids, and currently a fourth is being prepared thanks to the tandem generated between Torre Barrina (experiences of social innovation), the Escola Pere Llistart Institut and the Institut Margarida Xirgu de l’Hospitalet. So far, more than 500 fifth and sixth graders and ESO have participated.
The Cinephone Kids experience, learning to make movies from mobile, has been selected as Good Practice in the field of New Technologies, for this reason it has been included in the Banc of Bones Pràctiques of local governments, endorsed by the Fundació Pi i Sunyer and the Federació de Municipis de Catalunya.
