Shorts for Wee Ones


Our Discovery-curated collections of short films for younger audiences are always a highlight of the festival, and enjoy great success at partner venues across the country throughout the rest of the year. We’re sure 2016 will be no different, with these little gems from around the world, including Germany, France, Switzerland, Hungary and the USA.

There’s a little mouse quietly obsessed with cleanliness, a thrilling high-speed chase through the streets of a French port (on tricycles!) and a reindeer faced with endless avalanches that keep burying his little cabin in the woods. An adventurous tree emerges from the forest sporting a very fetching pair of wellies, a cartoon cat and dog erase their differences and some pitch-perfect piggies go the whole hog...

All these short films are in English or are dialogue free, except one where French is spoken but the storytelling is superbly visual. All the films will be accessible for everyone.

These magical tales will delight children age 3+ and are a colourful introduction to the cinema experience.
