With the aim to supply the future historians with the tools for history dissemination,    the cinema association for children La Matatena, Asociación de Cine para Niñas y Niños A.C  was invited to give a workshop for the first time at the Institute. Students of different semesters of the BA took part in this stop-motion animation workshop with modeling clay. . The   objective was  to create a space for expression and dissemination of historical knowledge through a creative process of filming a short-film. This experience provided the opportunity to reflect on the role played by historians in the society and the tools that can be used in disseminating historical processes.​​

By the end of 2013, the students  produced the short-film  Jugando con la Historia (Playing with History)  (México, 2013), where they turned the results of a historical research into a timeline in order to offer children a recollection of the toys and games that have being part of Mexico’s cultural history.​​​
