The “Juna Kino” International Young Film Festival is an exhibition platform that brings together, based on an annual call, short films, documentaries, reports and music videos made by children and adolescents from all over the world. It is an independent cultural initiative conceived and developed by the Paso Libre Collective, whose objective is to articulate cultural and artistic projects that directly affect the community.
This festival arises as a response to the need to provide a space for younger creators, who see the cinema as a way to express their concerns.

At present, young people are highly attracted to audiovisual materials, so this characteristic will be used in their favor to involve them in the problems and themes that they generally do not perceive or attend to because they do not consider them of interest.

In 2016 we had our first edition, with more than 20 short films that were collected around the world. An audience of more than 12,000 people was reached, with 6 screenings at the Cine Morelos and 15 screenings in secondary schools in the state.
