Many authors define horror films as "fairy tales for adults" and the Big Bad Wolf section aims at working this relationship between  a children's tale and the universe of horror. Besides film screenings, this section also promotes follow-up group work related to the themes of the section through creative workshops, theatre plays, and many other activities organised in collaboration with other entities. 

This section has received over the years dozens of children per day during the Festival with a diverse and surprising programme that has been offering its younger audience painting and drawing workshops, mystical figures projections, and even a live dubbing screening of "The Peanut Butter Solution" by the students at the Academia Nicolau Breyner, among many other fun activities. 

Big Bad Wolf 2019 Programme

In 2019, we remain firm with our partnerships with Maria Brinca à Sombra and O Meu Monstrinho. With Sara Del Rio in Maria Brinca à Sombra, children of all ages, will be able to confront their fears through the use of artistic expression; while with Susana Albiero and Gwendolyn van der Velden, they will have the opportunity to openly speak about their fears through the creation of protective monsters. We also highlight the return of the cooking workshop with Ângela Pereira from rub-a-duckie and the already mythical Paper Chase Game through the backstage of the Cinema São Jorge. 

And, of course, let's not forget the film screenings that include this year the great adventure of "The Little Vampire" by Richard Claus and Karsten Kiilerich (Holland/Germany/Denmark/United Kingdom, 2017) and the hilarious "Happy Family" by Holger Tappe (Germany/United Kingdom, 2017). The short film screenings will also return, especially curated by the Big Bad Wolf team.
