IndieJunior addresses children from 4 months to 15 years old. For babies between 4 and 30 months old, the immersive cinema experience is offered with the accompaniment of parents or guardians at Baby Cinema. For older children, the cinema screenings are organised 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 the age of each group into account.
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.
IndieJúnior is composed by several screenings for different 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.
