However, the coordination indicates that there is a desire to hold the Exhibition in the spring, if possible. But this possibility is still being studied, as the priority is to protect everyone's health.

In all, 28 countries sent their films to the Florianópolis Exhibition, which proves the importance of the event in the international scenario.

Selected short films from all regions of Brazil

The program for the 19th edition of the Mostra includes short, medium and feature films in the genres of fiction, animation, documentary, experimental cinema, national and international. Around 10 films produced by children in projects in schools and communities were also selected.

Among the international productions are productions from the United Kingdom and 11 countries, highlighting Iran, Israel and Mongolia - debuting at the Children's Film Festival in Florianópolis.

The criteria used in the selection were aesthetic, artistic and technical quality and addressing the children's audience, taking into account affective, aesthetic-cultural needs and interests and children's rights - including their rights to imagination, playfulness, information and knowledge. Aspects such as authorship and child protagonism, cultural diversity, originality in technical and thematic approaches, in tune with the specificities of the present moment in the child's perspective were also valued.
