IndieJunior is a section of IndieLisboa International Independent Film Festival dedicated to young audiences. Its purpose is to actively contribute to the cultural and aesthetic education of children and adolescents through an artistic and ludic experience. It is essentially constituted by screenings of films from all over the world, including animations, fictions and documentaries.
IndieJunior addresses children from 3 to 15 years old with screenings organized into two branches – Families and Schools – targeting specific age groups: +3 years old, +6 years old, +9 years old, +12 years old and +15 years old. The programme is carefully thought taking into account the age of each group.
These screenings take place on weekends and holidays and include a presentation. Their main goal is to bring together parents and children with activities that enrich both and strenghthen emotional bonds. The programme includes the best short and feature films in the IndieJunior Competition.
IndieJunior is composed by numerous screenings for various school audiences‚ from pre-school and elementary to high school.
IndieJunior’s Audience Award is attributed according to spectators’ votes at Schools and Families screenings. They are the sole responsible for the attribution of the prize to the film of their preference.
