Taartrovers Cinemini

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.

Are you big now or still small? Or both at the same time? Or sometimes big and then small again? In this film program you meet big animals and small people, and small animals and big people.

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 also at Natlab since 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.
