El Meu Primer Festival, now in its sixth edition, continues to share the wonder of audiovisual creation with children from a wide-ranging, creative perspective.

Great Masters of Animation is a programme of shorts designed to introduce young children to inspiring works of art from the world of animated filmmaking across the decades. These films have travelled the globe, yet remain largely unknown. In this session we invite you to discover Japanese animator Osamu Tezuka and his short films inspired by nature, and two of Nick Park's first shorts for Aardman, a witty British animation studio with a sharp sense of humour.
