We’re back at Picturehouses throughout London and the UK with our latest Kids’ Club programme!
Animation, like childhood, can be full of wonder with the biggest pleasures being the simplest ones. This programme strips away all the soft-sell toy ads and the over-the-top blockbuster-style special effects and just delivers up a collection of wonderful films full of simple joys. These films are exclusively for children and their parents or carers. Unaccompanied adults are not admitted.
Children are encouraged to vote for their favourites and tell us what they think about the films on show. Find out more here
Tickets will be available for purchase from your local Picturehouse

If you ever thought giraffes couldn’t do fancy tricks take a good look at this troupe of graceful, long legged beauties. You won’t believe your eyes – and neither will your kids!
The Smortlybacks (Ted Sieger & Wouter Dierickx, China/Switzerland)
Dazzling. A hilarious herd of smortly little creatures that just love to work as a team, even if they can be a bit clumsy sometimes.
The Scaredy Swan (Burcu Sankur & Geoffrey Godet, USA)
What do you do if you’re a swan who’s afraid to go in the water?
Ordinary Day (Vuk Palibrk, Serbia)
Even the most ordinary day can throw up the most extraordinary of obstacles. Over and over.
Mimo (Chang Pei Yee & Oon Qian Yi Shannon, Singapore)
The cycle of life. A stunning homage to the bold, colourful paintings of Joan Miro.
Revolution (Jess Deacon, Helen Friel & Chris Turner, UK)
The coolest thing ever. A real life popup book that moves all by itself.
Speechless (Daniel Greaves, UK)
A family of six sits down for a meal. They communicate using technology but one of them is determined to return to a traditional supper; good food and real conversation.
Trampoline (Maarten Koopman & Floris Kaayk, Netherlands)
Some things were just never meant to jump up and down on a trampoline. Little things are OK but giant animals… hmmm, not such a great idea.
Patch (Gerd Gockell, Switzerland/Germany)
The secret life of the pixel revealed on a big scale.
What is Music? (Christian Robinson, USA)

When Apples Roll (Reinis Kalnaellis, Latvia)
The delightful tale of cat and his devoted friend mouse and a whole lot of apples.
Serious and Bert (Ivo Christov & Manuela Seiler, Switzerland)

7 Tonnes 3 (Nicolas Deveaux, France)
There’s an elephant in the gym and it’s having a LOT of fun!
