Framed Film Club, Amazing Animations for 0-7 Year-Olds, LIAF, London International Animation FestivalLike childhood, animation is full of wonder and simple pleasures. This carefully chosen programme for our littlest and most special audience contains 14 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.

This programme contains several cheeky, loveable animals in all sorts of mad adventures. A manic octopus can’t stop cleaning up, a tiger is looking for someone to play with and a hard-working hedgehog goes on a magical quest with his friends the old monkey, the orphan squirrel, a stray bird and a beaver.

These films are suitable for all age-groups but especially 0-7 year-olds.

Adults can only come if they’re bringing a child, and children can only come along if accompanied by an adult.
