Shorts for Wee Ones - School Screening


This collection of short films is a wonderful mix of stories and characters from around the world – France, Sweden, Switzerland, Germany and the USA – and offers a wide variety of styles and techniques to entertain the wee ones (and everyone else in their party!).

We meet a mouse who wants to fly up high with the swallows, a robot who sets out to rescue a stranded whale and a tiger who has no stripes – but really wants some. A little boy is determined to have a great day out with his best friend (who just happens to be a tree) and a lion realises he just might need to lose a little weight… Plus we have the world premiere of a brand new film all about a very musical bear and his favourite footwear. Toe-tapping frivolity guaranteed!

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