LIAF Presents Amazing Animations for 0-7yo

LIAF Presents Amazing Animations for 0-7yo CERT TBC

Duration: 70m
This screening is suitable for children of all ages but is specifically aimed at 0-7 year-olds.

The following programme has been created by kids, for kids. Every two months, throughout 2017, we have screened a new programme of animated short films, the best films from all around the world, at cinemas UK-wide to our wildly enthusiastic childrens’ audiences. After the screenings the children were asked to vote for their favourite films. We’ve counted the votes – and these films are what YOU told us were your favourites throughout the year.

There’ll be talking animals, seriously fun adventures and tales that spark all those little imaginations. Animation is the most imaginative and engaging of all art forms and is the perfect platform to enthral and inspire the wide-open imaginations of kids. This programme – carefully selected with our youngest audience in mind – is always popular – and not a toy ad in sight.
