Enter a world of cinematic wonder at LIGHT PLAYGROUND, where the DFF will be transformed into a dynamic cinema, an experimental playground and an immersive experience designed especially for young children. Together with their families, educators and teachers, children between the ages of three and eight, in particular, but also younger and older children, are invited to unleash their creativity, to embark on a journey of the imagination and to discover the magical world of film. The exhibition welcomes individual families as well as organized groups, such as school classes and kindergartens.

The experience begins in the exhibition theater, where a selection of short silent films from the early days of cinema, award-winning animated films, and poetic documentaries light up the big screen and spark children’s curiosity about the world of film. After this introduction, the real experiments begin.

Throughout the exhibition, children can engage with various interactive stations created by the Dutch artist collective Taartrovers. Here they can play together and immerse themselves in the fundamental elements of filmmaking. They can learn how to bring images to life, discover the art of animation, understand the transformative power of music and sound in film, explore the role of light and shadow in cinematography, and experience the magic of projection. They will also gain insight into the importance of sets, props, and costumes.
