Alcine Kids

Tomorrow’s audiences and the future of cinema are the kids of today. That is why ALCINE is going to keep talking to a new generation in the language of film. We will be screening short films from around the world, made using a wide variety of animated film techniques, to open doors to imagination and to other ways of making film; a far cry from the standardised world of commercial cinema we are used to.

These are freer and more creative proposals from all over Europe, a kind of cinema different to what is normally on offer on the television and at multiplexes. Cinema that is new and different, which is able to fascinate and open doors to new horizons and worlds.

Full classrooms or kids with their parents will have a very special and fun space; their own festival at the height of their eyes, at ALCINE KIDS.

Family animation workshops with Mugigeldi

These workshops are aimed at the logical and kinesthetic development of the student through various activities related to the world of animation. We will create the sensation of movement through different techniques in which the child will foster their imagination and creativity and strengthen essential aspects for their proper development as an individual, such as attention, concentration, interaction, individual and team work, learning, memory, cognition and psychomotricity.

All the workshops mentioned below consist of three different parts and are free:

- Brief explanation of the history of the animation and the subject to be treated by visual, theoretical or practical methods to make the understanding of the concepts easy.
- Guided conversation with comments and questions to answer concerning the exposed topic.
- Practical exercises on the theme of each workshop, which will be done in a group or individual.

No drawing or animation skills are necessary, just the desire to have fun and learn.


Pixilation is an animation technique, a variant in the stop motion technique in which dolls or plasticine characters are not used, but people. The participants themselves will use the movements of their body to create magical moments of interaction with the animated objects around them. They will become human puppets, which photo by photo, will create an animated film of which they will be protagonists. Once the turn of the photos has been created, we will create the animation using video editing programs. We will edit and sound to get the final piece that the participants can take home.

Pika Pika

From lanterns, drawings are created in each photograph and then these images are joined to generate an animated film. The workshop will begin with a brief explanation and small exercises to understand the basic notions of this technique. Afterwards, and after presenting a script to follow for its correct execution of the practice, each child will start to draw in the air with the colored lights of the lanterns, creating together a joint animation. To finish, you will go to the assembly of all the photographs, creating a joint animation where you can see the result of your work.
