With the goal of entertaining and educating, stimulating imagination and creativity, and awakening the critical spirit.
My First Festival is a festival that wants to be a window for the exhibition of unpublished works or difficult to see on commercial screens, but also a space for participation and dialogue where children are the real protagonists: an audience that sees, thinks , think, ask, vote, create… My First Festival wants to be a showcase of contemporary creation in terms of children's cinema, but it also wants to contribute to the education of the cinematic gaze and the learning of the history of movie theater.
The festival is mainly concentrated in the city of Barcelona, but is expanding throughout Catalonia and since 2014 it has also been held in the city of Madrid in a smaller format.
My First Festival is promoted and coordinated by the MODIband Cultural Association and has the support of the Catalan Institute of Cultural Enterprises of the Generalitat de Catalunya (ICEC) and the Institut de Cultura de Barcelona (ICUB) and the Barcelona Provincial Council.
