LIAF presents: Shorts for Kids, Arts Picturehouse, Cambridge

August 26, 2013
10:00 am

Animation, like childhood, can be full of wonder with the biggest pleasures being the simplest ones. This programme strips away all the soft-sell toy ads and the over-the-top blockbuster-style special effects and just delivers up a programme of wonderful films full of simple joys.

These films are suitable for children of all ages, but are specifically aimed at 0-5 year-olds.

Please check with Arts Picturehouse for the correct start time. Tickets will be available for purchase here
