We’ve curated another crackin’ collection of animated gems for our younger audience at Picturehouse Cinemas across the UK. Screening this Saturday (28th Sep) and containing a sneak-peek at the LIAF 2013 line-up in the form of Edmunds Jansons’ Choir Tour (which will screen in International Competition Programme 6 amongst others), these films are suitable for children of all ages (but are specifically aimed at 5-10 year-olds). You can find out more about the films screening below and find your local Picturehouse Cinema here
