About Festinema Junior

A nationwide French film festival and educational program designed for children and teens, Festinema Junior was created by the Alliance Française network in the United States and is part of Kids Trail, a program initiated by the Cultural Services of the French Embassy in the US and the FACE Foundation.

Through the power of cinema, the festival aims to inspire young audiences and spark their curiosity about cultures around the world.

The Festinema Junior program has four goals:

  1. Introduce young audiences to world cinema and international cultures
  2. Integrate film as a teaching tool in the classroom
  3. Offer children of all ages, backgrounds, status, and origins an opportunity to see a foreign language film in a theater
  4. Teach young people to think critically in their analysis of films
