IndieJunior Schools 2020 has new dates: from October 6th to 16th

IndieJunior Schools 2020 has new dates!

After the postponement of the IndieLisboa festival, which was previously scheduled to run between April 30th and May 10th and took place in summer, from August 25th to September 5th, the school program of the IndieJunior section was unable to follow the rest of the festival on the same dates due to incompatibilities with the school calendar. For this reason, today we announce the new dates for the most beloved school program in Lisbon.

IndieJúnior has a programme of short and feature films – fiction, documentary and animation – for the various age groups, including preschool, 1st, 2nd and 3rd cycles. The films are carefully chosen so as to correspond to the interests, problems and inspirations of each age group, with the aim of establishing a relationship between each work and student, leaving space for debate and reflection in school, at home and in life.

Bring your class to the festival! You can guarantee seats for your students through the link

Registration has a price of 1,50€ per student (teachers and auxiliaries are exempt) and payment can be made closer to the day of the screening.

In addition, the schools and teachers not able to bring the students to the venues, this year it is possible to bring the IndieJunior sessions to inside the schools. For these specific cases, we ask to get in touch via email escolas@indiejunior.com
