Children's Film Festival 2011


Kinemastik in collaboration with St. James Cavalier Centre For Creativity is offering a 2 day workshop for children titled,

“The Little Rock People…..Take 2”

Animated film is a charming, enchanting, unique and specific art direction where film, art and musical language allows the creators to bring to life their unlimited imagination and at the same time, offers the viewers some kind of message into reflection and consideration……..the feeling of the story!

Over the 2 days the children will be creating their own shadow puppet film under the guidance of Jo Tabone & Adrian Abela (Maltese Artist/Film-maker) & the St. James Cavalier team of animators.

The aim of this workshop is to allow the children to have the opportunity to learn the basic procedures of how this is done and to go deeper into the learning about the audio visual contents.

At the end of the workshop, their completed shadow puppet film will be shown at the Kinemastik International Children’s Short Film Festival on Sunday 31st July at 7pm at Herbert Ganado Gardens, Floriana. Parents and siblings are invited to the event.

Bookings will be accepted on a first come first served basis with a maximum of 40 places available at a fee of €20

Children should wear comfortable clothes and bring a packed lunch.
