Small Experiments

El Meu Primer Festival is a small festival designed to open children’s eyes to the weird and wonderful world of audiovisual creation. Besides blockbuster animations there are many other small films that enrich the audiovisual landscape and spark children’s imagination.

One of the festival’s most successful initiatives has been its two-year partnership with the Barcelona Independent Film Festival, l’Alternativa. This year we are presenting not only the experimental Small Experiments session, but also the Great Masters of Animation session designed to open young eyes to little-known work by acclaimed animators.

El Meu Primer Festival is also holding a hands-on animation workshop (Create Your Own Short!) to tie in with these Parallel Sections.

In collaboration with El Meu Primer Festival. Buy tickets.
