Cinema is an important tool that opens the door for us to notice our world and to better understand the world of others, real and imagined. As Film Institutions with an interest in image education we understand that it is our mission to prepare youngsters to critically watch a film, to think about the images, to learn from them and use them proficiently.

It is also intended to encourage debate, exchange ideas and think of news ways of working around the themes of the festival - identity, border and memory - within the scope of the educational services of participating institutions.
