London International Animation Festival (LIAF) short film programme for kids 8+

Floating Cinema



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.
