La Matatena 2017

For the 22nd time the children’s and youth’s Film Festival La Matatena took place in Mexico City. Besides the screening of 98 movies from 22 different countries, children and youths had the opportunity to attend workshop formats and activities from August 8th until August 13th 2017. Our programme coordinator Elias Rodriguez has been on site to look behind the scenes and to be part of a discussion forum with other film makers from Chile and Mexico about national circumstances and conditions for film festivals. The festival La Matatena puts internationalism at the heart of the learning experience, while also emphasizing the personal and unique nature of children’s experience with cinema.
