In Valladolid, Spain, Film-making is taught to children without them having to use a camera. Following are some of the videos showcasing the process and final results of these workshops.

The Asociación Espacio Rojo (Red Space Asociation) is the one organizing the workshops, and this is how they introduce their vision:

Actualmente, Estamos realizando el Taller ‘Mi primera película’ que es un taller práctico de cine sin cámara. Este taller presenta la forma de hacer cine, películas sin cámaras usando técnicas y soporte cinematográfico como medio de expresión.

Currently, the “My First Movie” workshop is taking place, a practical film-making workshop without using cameras. This workshop shows the process of making movies on film without using cameras, using different techniques and projectors as a means of expression.
