Let's conquer stereotypes and banish false beliefs about generational lethargy and inertia. They are responsible, persevering, they know themselves, exercise creativity and self-criticism, they are masters of emotional control, capacity to choose and to calculate risks. This is not a detailed description of Marvel's superheroes, armed with supernatural powers, but of Enfants Terribles, Asturian students who, for a week, visit Gijon International Film Festival. More than 13,000 children practice these skills within the framework of the section with the same name and proving, for the last fifteen years, that they can think and filter. Moreover: they have to decide, since they are responsible for selecting the best two productions of the year.
FICXixón pampers youth so that students between the ages of 6 and 18 years may appreciate and enjoy films, and understand that they are a cultural and artistic manifestation. An arduous task of visual coaching to which the Festival's organizing team adds the intention of transforming it into an enjoyable practice of divergent thinking and collaborative work, with an open, respectful and critical attitude towards the diversity of artistic expressions. And this is done offering products of proven quality, always national premières in original versions, supported by their participation and recognition at other festivals, such as Berlin, Sundance, Dallas or Montreal. The screens of La Laboral and Jovellanos theatres shall reflect stories on current day issues such as gender violence, bullying, racial and social diversity, teenage pregnancy, the influence of drug over behaviour or the recovery of love for nature.
The offer of the Festival, however, goes beyond the usual ninety minutes of the show. Each year experiences and challenges are posed bearing in mind both students and teachers. The heroic and versatile youth has the option of explaining what they see through the camera of their mobile phone, practicing creativity in the specific workshops on each film, testing their level of English during the meetings with the directors or receiving advice from the professionals of the film sector. Teachers are provided digital teaching guides with the key aspects of the films and they also receive documentation and tips to help them understand that movies are a work and professional orientation tool as valid as the inner pages of the Sunday edition of the newspapers.
In brief, the proposal that FICXixón offers to the Asturian education community is a door open to the autonomy and personal initiative which are necessary to be able to imagine and undertake all kinds of individual or collective projects including, of course, audiovisual projects.
