The Minis at LUCAS
WITH THE “MINIS” THE VERY YOUNGEST CAN DISCOVER THE DIVERSE WORLD OF THE MOVING IMAGE! In a creative and playful way, they get involved with a wide variety of narrative forms, actively reacting to abstract and experimental films that offer them plenty of room for imagination. Two short film programs invite children from three to six years, parents and daycare centers to join in. With the model project “Cinemini on Tour,” the DFF and numerous European partners keep these short films on hand. A treasure trove of films from the early days to the present day, from avant-garde to narrative animated films, awaits the young festival visitors. Teaching materials and activities complement the films.
Program 1: Twist & Turn
In “Twist & Turn” everything is in motion. Nothing stands still. Marbles sway and roll in all directions, ink and lines dance to the beat of the music and a dog moves with his best friend, his own tail. Together, the young audience looks, listens, moves and dances to five unique and funny films, one of them is even older than 100 years.
Program 2: Frame the world
When a film shows us the world, it does so through a rectangular frame. What we see is only a limited space. Each image reflects a personal point of view. In films we look at the world through the eyes of another. “Frame the world” challenges our perception. It shows us how movement can be manipulated in cinema, that it is difficult to observe everything in a public place, or that a detail in the landscape can hide a wonderful secret.
