Presented for the first time in Bellinzona in 1988, the Castellinaria International Young People's Film Festival is devoted to spotlighting films dealing with subjects of particular importance to children and adolescents in an attempt to encourage the creation and distribution of fine quality films.
Special attention is given to films with artistic, educational and humanitarian qualities, with the aim of stimulating knowledge of and comprehension between peoples and cultures. This does not exclude simply entertaining films. Particular importance is given to active school participation.
The Festival revolves around the cinema universe at 360°. It is a place for learning, where the spirit opens up and curiosity and creativity towards 'making' cinema is born. Through exhibitions and workshops, we discover the fascinating world behind the big screen.
