Relaxed Screening: Shorts for Wee Ones

Discovery Film Festival

We select this collection of short films from around the world for some of the youngest audiences at the festival, and every year we enjoy seeing how audiences react.

Once again the stories we’ve chosen come from a whole range of different countries: this year we journey to France, the Netherlands, Germany, Sweden and the USA. There’s a penguin whose attempts to serve drinks at a birthday party lead to utter chaos, a mystery fish who will only swim at the surface of the sea, and a little girl who insists on moving in to live with the animals at the zoo. A large green bird has some difficulties with a big bell and a very frisky egg, and we learn what happens when some dots start thinking (and eating) outside the box. Plus – and this is an absolute first for Discovery Film Festival – screen giant Samuel L. Jackson gives us his finest, funkiest, flashiest Tyrannosaurus Rex in a truly jaw-dropping, mind-boling and foot-tapping four minutes!

All these short films are in English or are dialogue free. These magical tales will delight children age 3+ and are a colourful introduction to the cinema experience.

Join us for a fun workshop after the Sun 28 screening. The workshop costs £1 with your Relaxed Screening: Shorts for Wee Ones cinema ticket: just add to your basket when booking for the film. Accompanying adults must also have a workshop ticket.
