Shorts for Wee Ones - Schools Screening


Our collections of short films are always the best-attended of the festival, with large numbers coming back year after year to see what the latest micro-offerings are. Increasingly popular when they go out on tour across Scotland and the rest of the UK after the festival, this is the chance for our Tayside audiences to see them first! In 2017 we will be presenting films from a whole host of countries, including Sweden, France, Russia, Germany and Switzerland.

Our old friend The Little Bird is back with a new pal (as well as that sly old fox), we watch a hungry tiger find a tasty meal (and eat his carrots) and learn how a big, old bear finds his singing voice. A little boy has to save an adventurous fish during a water shortage, and someone desperate to go to sleep learns that there is music all around (whether he likes it or not!)

All these short films are in English or are dialogue free (except for one with one word of German – and it’s very easy to understand!).

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.
