New ECFA Member: Zoomz Festival

The Zoomz Festival for Children & Youth Film will enter the 4th round! From March 20-24th a selection of quality films for children & youngsters, special programmes and workshops for every age or school group will be hosted at the State Cinema in Luzern, Switzerland.

The festival programme includes six different sections for a versatile film education, keeping the pulse of time:
– Children & youth films
– Special programme
– Workshops for schools
– Teacher’s training
– For professionals
– Family day
With this programme we want to strengthen our commitment regarding children & youth cinema in Central Switzerland.

For Schools…

We offer a platform for film and media education, with educationally substantiated film screenings. Embedding films in the school curriculum starts with pedagogical material to make youngsters acquainted with the film theme, but the festival experience is completed by a series of hands-on workshops taking on everything from animated film to virtual reality.

What’s new? Family day

On Saturday, March 24th Zoomz and the Central Swiss cultural institutions invite all families to the Bourbaki Panorama. The programme includes film screenings as well as an exciting film ‘steeplechase’. Make your own animated film, get acquainted with virtual reality, shoot small sequences, look behind the scenes of the cinema… An experience for the entire family!
