For the third consecutive year the Molins de Rei Horror Film Festival held a children’s horror short film session. It was be a double session: a selection of shorts for boys and girls from 6 to 9 years and another for boys and girls from 10 to 12 years.
We continue betting on the culture and the management of the emotions, taking advantage of the potential of the audiovisual to learn and to enjoy the fear. Knowing how to manage fear, preventing it from paralyzing us, also helps us to recognize in which cases we are being reckless in the face of a situation, and therefore allows us to minimize the risk of being damaged.
Terror and mystery are the main axis of shorts, but as always will not lack the necessary doses of comedy and humor. There will be short films from Spain, Poland, Moldavia, Iceland, Great Britain, United States, Canada, Mexico and Argentina. And, as in last year’s edition, the Cuquera de Molins de Rei cultural center also brings two short films created and made by the assistants to the summer couple “Estiu de Cine”.
The double session was supportive: used to raise funds for the association AFANOC (Association of Familiars and Friends of Nens Oncològics de Catalunya), which works to help children with cancer and their families. All the benefits were for them, that is why we asked for a contribution of one euro per assistant.
