Shorts for Middle Ones - Schools Screening


Fresh and inventive, this collection of new short films from around the world offers something for everyone from the age of eight and up. A mix of both live action and animation, these films offer some very distinctive world views.

We watch relationships develop through the power of sport (gymnastics and basketball), the paper-based genesis of a new canine superhero and visit a chic Parisian restaurant with a truly unique menu for its most discerning clientele. We watch a fresh way of interpreting art in a gallery, and see how an old, forgotten Rubik’s Cube finds a whole new audience. The dark and dangerous realities of the deep are chillingly explored in an ecological twist on the unseen world of the Blue Planet. Plus there are some madcap antics in two very different films about what happens when a pair of budgerigars suddenly discover their freedom…

Nearly all the films are dialogue free, with a couple in English – and one which has some brief subtitling of the original Arabic.

If you’re not quite sure how these films can be used in your classroom, come to one of our hands-on CLPL sessions.
