Picturehouse Kids' Club
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 Kids' Club screenings throughout the UK.
It's part of our day-to-day activity as a festival - to collect animated shorts from all over the world in all sorts of animation styles and techniques. And for Kids' Club we set aside the ones that we know will work best for our younger audiences. It's a wonderful opportunity to share the wealth of animation that we get to see everyday with the next generation of film fans, films buffs and filmmakers. One of the best bits of the job, is getting to hear what the children really think in our Vote & Review forms, which are handed out (by amazing Picturehouse staff) at every screening.
The kids of Kids' Club faithfully put pen to paper, giving us a genuine insight into what's really working for them. So much so, that their votes literally shape some of our curations. For the first time in 2014, we put together a screening entirely from films that the children had voted their favourites - curation by kids, for kids. A tradition that has carried on since and long may it continue. You can take a look at what they chose here
LIAF screenings at Picturehouse Kids' Club are for children aged 7+ and tickets are £1.50 each. No adult unaccompanied by a child will be admitted.
