Take your family underwater at Hackney Picturehouse!
We’ve pulled together a selection of aquatic-themed animations for our friends at Picturehouse, as part of a free afternoon of family-friendly film, crafts and activities… all with a sea-theme! In keeping with the underwater ideas, come dressed as your favourite sea creature – there will be prizes for the best outfits!
Suitable for ages 3+, adults must be accompanied by a child (and vice versa!)
This event has been organised by the Industry Insiders team – a very talented group of 15-19 year olds who are getting an insight into the film industry with the support of Hackney Picturehouse.

The Mole at the Sea (Anna Kadykova, 2012)
Everyone’s off to the seaside. Not wanting to miss out, the mole starts digging. When he gets there it’s nice and quiet with just a few crabs and a sailing boat to keep him company. But then the hordes arrive.
The Deep (PES, 2012)
Here’s a look at a strange underwater world you’ll never have seen before!
Anatole’s Island (Amer Nazhri & Chris Shepherd, 2013)
Anatole, a little marmot, lives on a magic Island. When he runs into St Ignatius, the monk, Anatole finds the poor man terribly upset about his lost snake. So, Anatole sets off to try and find him bumping into many eccentric inhabitants along the way.
Sandpixies: Clouds, nothing but clouds (Ralf Kukula, 2012)
What happens at the beach after the children have gone home? It’s when sandpixies George and Agatha wake up and go on their nightly adventures.

A cardboard boy and a bottle-top ladybug living in a cardboard city escape and set sail into a deep blue moonlit sea.
Bottle (Kirsten Lepore, 2011)
The power to connect knows no boundaries and can’t be stopped by Mother Nature’s power of erosion.
Lost and Found (Phil Hunt, 2009)
A wondrous, epic journey that proves there’s pretty much nothing a boy and a penguin can’t do when they really, really put their mind to it.
