Preschool Programmes
at the CHINH INDIA KIDS FILM FESTIVAL 2010

Title / Director Duration Synopsis
VOY! 
Television  Nacional 
de Chile, Chile 
5 minutes
In each episode a boy or girl living in the south of Chile, is the protagonist of an outing, recreational activity or self taught experience. The objective is to stimulate and validate the child´s initiative, discourage apathy and passivity, nists of the lives we choose. This series targets school age children in hopes that they willingly turn off the TV and go out to recreate activities after seeing one or more stories. The natural setting of the south of Chile (particularly Valdivia), is very appealing for this purpose. The series design lacks dialogue, with the intention of reaching international audiences.

This series of 20 short, 5-minute cartoons has been created to transmit simple messages about environmental problems to people all over the world.  It is, further, a joint production by Japan and China for broadcast in both countries.
Animals gather from across the world because the issues are too important to be left to human beings.  The clashes between their diverse standpoints and opinions encourage viewers to think about environmental issues themselves.
This rare cartoon series on environmental themes does not rush to conclusions but seeks instead to provide educational entertainment by grasping the essential issues and showing how cross-cultural understanding and the toleration of diversity depend on good communication.
