More than just a film festival, the Cinephone Film Festival has several projects looking forward to change the mobile base cinema in order to make it more than just a trend. One of the most interesting proposals is Cinephone Kids, a series of classes imparted in schools and high schools in order to teach the younger ones how to use their mobiles to make cinema.

We’ve already made three editions of Cinephone Kids, and now we’re working on the fourth edition thanks to the synergy created with Torre Barrina (social innovation experiences), the Escola Pere Llistart high school and the Margarida Xirgu high school from l’Hospitalet. Till now, more than 500 pupils within 5th and 6th grade have participated in these courses, with the confidence that, in the future, some of this kids will participate in the oficial film festival.

In fact, the Cinephone Kids’ experience has been selected as Good Practice in New Technologies, that’s the reason why this course is now included in the Banc de Bones Pràctiques of the local government, endorsed by Fundació Pi i Sunyer and Federació de Municipis de Catalunya.
