Shorts for Wee Ones

Culture Night Free Screening / 4.30PM / Ages 3-7 yrs

Fri 21 Sep 2018 4.30PM Main Auditorium // FREE

These magical tales will delight children age 3+ and are a colourful introduction to the cinema experience. These short films from a whole host of countries, including Sweden, France, Russia, Germany, Switzerland…
For audiences aged three and older, we’re delighted to present a variety of short tales about going on adventures, making friends, trying out new things and learning new skills. We watch a hungry tiger find a tasty meal (and eat his carrots) and learn how a big, old bear finds his singing voice. A little boy has to save an adventurous fish during a water shortage, and someone desperate to go to sleep learns that there is music all around (whether he likes it or not!).
All these short films are in English or are dialogue-free (except for one with one word of German – and it’s very easy to understand!). These magical tales will delight children age 3+ and are a colourful introduction to the cinema experience as well as moving image literacy.
