Taartrovers Cinemini
Sun 3 Mar 11:00

Children from 2 to 6 years experience their first cinema visit in our cozy cinema. On Sunday morning, toddlers and preschoolers will experience Taartrovers Cinemini, a special program in which they experience film and can play in a beautiful light landscape.

During Taartrovers Cinemini we show beautiful, sweet, exciting, abstract, narrative and sometimes also challenging short films, especially for toddlers and preschoolers. Afterwards, the visitors play together in a light landscape, consisting of various installations with which children playfully discover how light can create stories. They investigate form, projection, light, shadow, stories, movement and colour. How do shadows arise? Where do images come from, how do shapes become larger or smaller and how do shapes disappear into nothingness? And what stories can they see in the shapes? For adults, shadow is something that is self-evident, for children it is perhaps a magician who turns the adults into tall giants.

In this program you watch The Snail and the Whale, about a small snail who wants to travel to discover the big world. But as a wanderlust snail you won't get that far.

Snail loves to travel and wants to go on an adventure! But he won't get that far on his own. One day Snail finds a solution. He's hitching a ride on a whale's tail! Together they go on a journey past icebergs and volcanoes, sharks and penguins. With beautiful images and few words, the makers tell a story about dreams and travelling, about being small and big at the same time. Come and have a look and travel at sea. A beautiful story about an unlikely friendship, a world trip and a heroic rescue. From the makers of The Gruffalo and The Child of the Gruffalo.

Taartrovers Cinemini was developed by Taartrovers and Eye Filmmuseum.

Taartrovers Cinemini is a project developed by Taartrovers and Eye Filmmuseum. The project can now be experienced every Sunday morning in Eye Filmmuseum in Amsterdam for several years and will also be experienced with us from autumn 2023.

The Taartrovers develop interactive cultural projects for and with children. They let young children discover the power of imagination in a playful way. They are allowed to use all their senses to examine images, play with them and make them their own. Taartrovers develops teaching materials and installations, but you also come across them in theaters with their own festival, in the community center with extracurricular activities, in museums, at schools or symposia. In this way we bring culture for young children to all places in society.
