LIAF 2019: Family Film Club: Amazing Animations for 0-7 year-olds (U*)

November 30, 2019
11:00 am

Like childhood, animation is full of wonder and simple pleasures. This carefully chosen programme for our littlest and most special audience contains 12 of the best, most recent wonderful short animated films, full of joy, from all around the world.

There’ll be talking animals, seriously fun adventures and wondrous tales to spark those little imaginations. Adults are allowed in if they have permission from their kids. Suitable for all ages but especially 0-7 year-olds.

This programme contains several cheeky, loveable animals in all sorts of mad adventures. Percy Cat is looking forward to a holiday in ‘Cat Lake City’, a mouse dreams of wanting to fly with birds, a small tiger goes on a long journey to find his stripes and neighbours Pig and Duck learn that friendship is the most important thing to cherish.

Adults can only come if they’re bringing a child, and children can only come along if accompanied by an adult. If you’re over 18, we’re afraid being a ‘big kid’ doesn’t count.
