Animation, like childhood, can be full of wonder with the biggest pleasures being the simplest ones. This programme carefully chosen for children of 8 and above strips away all the soft-sell toy ads and the over-the- top blockbuster-style special effects to deliver a selection of wonderful films full of joy. This programme is suitable for all ages but especially 8-15 year-olds.
These enthralling films include a surreal story about three friends who exchange heads by accident, a grumpy granny living in a blue fairy-tale forest, two characters linked by their hair and several other weird, wonderful and magical tales.
At Belmont Filmhouse. Tickets will be available from Belmont Filmhouse. Please check Belmont Filmhouse for correct start time.
