Locarno Kids - 2018
Thanks to the synergies with SUPSI’s Dipartimento formazione e apprendimento (DFA), Locarno Kids has had the chance to rely on a group of experts, which managed about twenty workshops specifically catered to children and teenagers between the ages of 3 and 14. The workshops were based on inputs and suggestions made by the Festival’s programming. Among the many partnerships we could also find the one with LAC Lugano Arte e Cultura, which has enriched Locarno Kids with two workshops on animation and sound design, aimed at children between 11 and 15 years of age.
To complete this offer, there has been a series of screenings, selected and commented by the experts of Castellinaria, exclusively addressed to the participants of the workshops. Cinemagia, besides its traditional family screening on Piazza Grande, which took place on Sunday, August 12th 2018, also offer the chance to elementary school children to get to know the Festival from behind the scenes, by meeting various film directors and collaborators. Finally, Lanterna Magica organized a theatrical show, to anticipate one of Locarno Kids’ projections linked to the Retrospettiva on Leo McCarey.
