Taartrovers Cinemini
Sun 4 Feb and Sun 21 Jul
4 Feb

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 the is about who you are and who the people around you are. Why do you sometimes feel alone when you are with others? And how can you have fun on your own?

Googuri is a coined word, a secret shared by a little girl with her old grandpa. She loves being with her grandfather. Sometimes he is a mountain, other times a tree or the sea. In her endless imagination she travels with him through her world full of imagination. Googuri Googuri is a film that you feel, with a strong flowing drawing style. It gives a beautiful picture of the world through the eyes of a small child, a small person who discovers everything.

Tiger wants so much to play with the others. But he lacks stripes on his body and therefore does not really belong. Because other tigers do have them and Tijgertje wants them too! That's why he goes on a journey, looking for stripes on his fur. What will he find? The film is soft and calm in style with beautiful colors, fine music and beautiful play of light.

Betty the cat goes sailing. She is bored because she is alone. Everyone else – the snails, dragonflies, worms – happily play together. The banana birds are even three and the frog befriends Betty's rubber boot. Betty fishes up all sorts of things and suddenly gets an idea! This dreamy film shows how the feeling of languid boredom can turn into a beautiful adventure.

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.
