In the early days of cinema, with the advent of the cinematograph, the avant-garde artists found a new medium of expression, called seventh art, which was soon adopted by the major studios.

Thus, the space occupied by the Picknic Film Festival, is a place where films of reduced visibility and distribution, but selected for prestigious film festivals, with the approval of the press, have the possibility to be screened.

At the Biblioteca Central de Cantabria may be seen competition sections, such as animation, video art, documentary and fiction short films; feature films will be screened at the Central Library of Cantabria in the morning session, and in the afternoon session at the Filmoteca de Cantabria.

The screenings of the 2nd Mini Picknic Film Festival could be seen in the morning session at the Central Library of Cantabria.
