Small Experiments

L'Alternativa and El Meu Primer Festival have teamed up for a second time to put on this educational initiative to help foster more active, aware and thoughtful filmgoers.

This year we present a selection of contemporary short films made with different animation techniques starring robots, animals, toys and other strange creatures. Some push artistic and experimental boundaries, while others have a healthy sense of humour, but as a whole they offer an insight into the range of different resources and styles currently used to make animations: from stop-motion shorts and animated objects to computer animation and animated drawings and paintings. Although there is no dialogue, all these short films make extensive use of music and sounds. A rich, varied selection to thrill young and old.

Recommended age: 5 upwards
All projections in video. All films with no dialogue.

In collaboration with El Meu Primer Festival.
