The 21st edition of DocsBarcelona, which will be held from May 16 to May 27, 2018, warms up with the announcement of the full programme of the Docs&Teens section, aimed at younger audience.
This year we dedicate the Docs&Teens section to highlight climate change, the dangers that our planet faces today, the reality of the global warming and how the place where we are born and live affects us.
This edition proposes four exceptional stories for students. A unique opportunity to awaken the consciences of the youngest while discovering fascinating and real stories through documentary film. All the screenings will be accompanied by a Q&A between the students and the creators of the films and/or experts on the subjects. Docs&Teens is a competitive section and the selected films opt for the Docs&Teens Audience Award, given by the attendees to the sessions.
The Docs&Teens section 2018 consists of the following four documentaries:
