LIAF presents: Toddler Time Special at Picturehouse Cinemas

November 27, 2014
10:00 am

For a while now we’ve been teaming up with our friends at Picturehouse to bring regular animation programmes to cinema’s youngest audiences at Toddler Time screenings throughout the UK. The children have been very busy putting pen to paper, telling us exactly what they think of the films on the voting forms that are handed out by the amazing Picturehouse staff at each and every screening.

The following programme has been created by kids, for kids. We’ve counted the votes – and these films are what YOU told us were your favourites! Thank you to everyone who came along. Bring on 2014’s votes!

Please check with your local Picturehouse for the correct start time.
