Screenings at the Velodrome

Intended for school audiences during the San Sebastian International Film Festival
Screenings at the Velodrome

The San Sebastian International Film Festival (SSIFF), the DIPC and the Basque Film Archive have been collaborating for some time to link two of the distinctive features of our city: its dedication to cinema and its high specialisation in science. As a result of this collaboration, since 2019 we have been jointly organising the classic morning screenings at the velodrome for schoolchildren during the festival, showing films on a large screen and in Basque, thus conveying an attractive and entertaining image of science to younger generations. More than 13,000 children attend the classic velodrome sessions.

  • Edition 2020. Harrapatu Bandera (Enrique Gato, 2015). Virtual format by NASA researcher Eneko Axpe.
  • Edition 2021. Tadeo Jones 2. Midas Erregearen Sekretua (Enrique Gato & David Alonso, 2017). Virtual format by marine archaeologist Maria Intxaustegi.
  • Edition 2022. Terra Willy: Planeta Ezezaguna (Enric Tosti, 2022). Screening at the velodrome with Pepper, the humanoid robbot of the  research group of the Faculty of Computer Science UPV/EHU.
  • Edition 2023. Boonie Bears: Abentura Historiaurrean (Leon Ding, 2023). Screening at the velodrome by volcanologist Janire Prudencio from the University of Granada.
