TerrorKids is the program of activities for children and family that the Festival organizes since 2015. Its objective is to promote enjoyment of cinema from an early age, enhance creativity and promote social cohesion.

TerrorKids activities are organized on site during the Festival. Since 2021 it also offers online content on its own platform TerrorKidsTV, which families can enjoy from anywhere and at any time.

TerrorKids is included within the transversal objective of the Festival to offer quality audiovisual content for infants, as well as leisure education for different audiences, including children and families. In the same way, the Aula de Terror section addresses the educational field, both for children and adults.

LIST OF ACTIVITIES TERRORKIDS 2021:

7th TerrorKids Exhibition of Horror Short Films for children

Since 2015, the Festival organizes the Horror Short Films Show for boys and girls, a screening of a selection of horror short films for children. The screening is divided into two parts: a first session with short films for children between 6 and 9 years old, and a second part with short films for children from 10 years old. The short films exhibited are selected taking into account the criteria of quality, representativeness and suitability for the public. During the session there will be a presentation of the works made in the children’s cinema workshop, by its participants.

Children's cinema workshop "Your first horror scene"

Fourth edition of the Children’s Film Workshop “Your first horror scene” which aims to introduce children to filmmaking and explore the elements that define the horror genre. The purpose of this workshop is for the participating children to devise and record a scene (in sequence shot) where some of the archetypal elements of horror cinema appear. In addition, in this edition we will add the ecological look proposed by the leitmotif of the Festival where the activity is framed. Activity for 8 years old or older children.

We co-organize it with the El Molí Library.

  • Creative workshop for making a thaumatrope (4 models)

    The thaumatrope, the zootrope’s and pradxinoscope’s precursor, is an optic toy that generates the illusion of a moving image. To make one, you will need: scissors, glue, a stick or a straw. Now you only need to spin the thaumatrope with your hands.

  • Shadow play workshop ( very surrealist! )

    You can enjoy the experience of making your own shadow play theatre. To make the shadows you will need: scissors, glue, a stick or a straw. And if you want to make the theatre, you will only need a white sheet and a lamp. Now you only have to make up a story!

  • Draw and paint our M

    And for the little ones, and not so little, we suggest drawing and painting the image of our Festival, ¡the M! You can use any technique you want: crayons, tempera, markers, stickers, collage, etc. You just have to let your imagination go!

And if you want more horrific fun, here you have Una mazmorra entre todos, an amazing poster by the ilustrator @lauriellemaven that you can print and paint however you want. The only requisite is to not re-upload it to other websites and to not erase the signature, but do not hesitate to add yours!
