Reteena, the first audiovisual festival designed for teenagers

Over the course of six days, younger audiences will be able to take part in a programme designed specifically for them at Texas cinemas and Fabra i Coats, including screenings and training workshops.

The Reteena Festival, which is set to begin its first ever edition on 15 January, has a fundamentally educational vocation. In this new era, literacy has expanded beyond simply knowing how to read and write and now includes the need to understand the fundamentals of audiovisual language. Cinema, television, internet, advertising and video games make up very powerful communication systems that have their own code, and not only offer both creative opportunities and the chance to embark on a professional career. Reteena, therefore aims to sparks teenagers' curiosity, widen their frame of reference and direct their steps towards this area of ​​activity. That's why, during the six days of the festival, from 15 to 20 January, Texas cinemas and Fabra i Coats will host workshops, screenings and events aimed at exploring, reflecting on and experimenting with audiovisuals.

At Cinemes Texas, the screenings, which were chosen by the Reteena team, will take place one per day between 15 and 19 January around the concept of 'Youth'. And at Fabra i Coats, a series of educational workshops will be given by professionals from the sector, including Plato de Cine, El Parlante and Digital Films. The daily schedule will run from 10am to 8pm, and you just have to take a look at the complete program of activities and choose the workshop you're most interested in, and then book it in advance. There will also be lectures and roundtable discussions on topics such as stop-motion animation, the world of the Internet and YouTube, the uses of Instagram, and participatory photography and film production. On 20 January, all of the activities - workshops and screenings - will converge at Fabra i Coats on a day when access is free of charge.
