FesticineKids 24 is an international children's and youth film festival in Cartagena de Indias, it is a film contest that orients its efforts towards strengthening the production and distribution of Colombian, Latin American and world cinema for children and young people.

In 2022, FesticineKids reaches its 24to, edition virtually, but with the same spirit of highlighting and celebrating cinema for girls, boys and young people. The phrase has been chosen as the slogan: THE AMBIENT IS IN YOU. From this concept it is intended to invite children and young people to be aware of the responsibility they have to be agents of change in their environments. Children and young people are the future that should encourage the care of our planet earth, the human beings that surround them, animals and plants, as well as the places they visit. That is why in the midst of this changing era that we are living, it is important to recognize the leading role that the new generations have to change and improve.

In the construction of the profile of the FesticineKids 24, the screen is problematized as a point of confluence of girls, boys and adolescents. By postulating cinema as that scenario in which feelings, emotions and beliefs are expressed, it is intended that girls, boys and adolescents, understanding what the cinema evokes them, what they extract from it and its meanings, wonder about the place that cinema has in their lives, in their environment, in parallel to the place they want and dream of.

It is also an opportunity for adults, parents, teachers, cultural and cinematographic authorities, to think about the need to strengthen their capacities to be trainers in tension and interaction with the audiovisual media, especially the cinema.
