Within Ceau, Cinema, section Ceau, Junior! Animest offers to the little ones an animated journey with characters who will become their friends and lead them through several new worlds. The selection of eight films is made within the Animation Festival Network, consisting of the animation film festivals Animafest Croatia, Anifilm Czech Republic, Fest Anča Slovakia, Animest Romania and Animateka Slovenia. The educational project is co-financed by the Creative Europe program of the European Union and includes animated films that address ecological themes, sustainable development and environmental conservation.
For the youngest of viewers, the films that open the screening address the theme of unusual friendship between seemingly different creatures. The proposed selection can be a good starting point for discussions and concrete actions within everyone's reach, which adults can support in educating the little ones in the spirit of love for nature and for their fellows. The films are aimed mainly at children from 4 to 10 years old, but are also warmly recommended for older children and adults.
The screening will take place on Sunday, July 16, from 11:00 a.m., at FABER. It will also be attended by the representatives of the Animest Festival, Mihai Mitrică and Ligia Soare, who are visiting us for the first time.
