The San Sebastian Festival promotes Puxika Gorria / El Globo Rojo, a childcare service for the Festival professionals
Monday, August 5th, 2019

The San Sebastian Festival, in collaboration with the San Telmo Museum and the Parenting at Film Festivals community, and the support of CIMA (Association of Women Filmmakers and Women in Audiovisual Media), promotes Puxika Gorria / El Globo Rojo (The Red Balloon), a childcare service for accredited Festival guests. 

Twinned with Le Ballon Rouge, the Cannes Festival initiative, Puxika Gorria / El Globo Rojo will offer a space of 100 m2 at the San Telmo Museum. Said museum is one of the Festival’s main hubs, home of activities for Industry professionals, such as the Europe-Latin America Co-Production Forum.  

The space, organised by a company of professional carers who will look after the sons and daughters of accredited guests in Basque, Spanish and English, will remain open from 10:00 to 18:00 between the 20 and 28 September for children between the ages of 6 months and 6 years. The childcare service will have a breast-feeding area and a meeting point for mothers and fathers. 

The service will cost 50 euros per child for the whole Festival. Sixteen-hour vouchers will also be available at a cost of 30 euros.

“Family-friendly services are gradually coming to festivals too. Modestly, with this childcare service, we want to add our grain of sand to achieving fairer and more inclusive social development”, said the Festival Director, José Luis Rebordinos.

“At Parenting at Film Festivals we’re very happy to collaborate with Puxika gorria / El Globo Rojo at the San Sebastian Festival. We hope it contributes to work-life balance in our industry and serves as an inspiration for society in general", say the Parenting at Film Festivals co-founders: Sarah Calderón, Michelle Carey, Aurélie Godet and Olimpia Pont-Chafer. 

Further details will be announced on the Festival website in early September. For more information and provisional booking, you can contact the organisation by writing to
