Moving away from mainstream kid's feature films, you might want to consider exposing your kids to thought provoking, cute, funny, sometimes abstract short films from around the world in the annual Little Big Shots Festival: Film Festival for Kids at the ACMI.
Little Big Shots Festival: Film Festival for Kids
Every winter, Little Big Shots begin touring Australia showcasing an amazing selection of global animations and short films, purposely made for family viewing.
Ben, the Artistic Director of Little Big Shots, spends his time scouring the world's festivals and the internet to find the best short films to screen in the annual Australian film festival for children.
The festival screens at ACMI's cinema, broken down into programs, with around 9 short films and animations in each package. Each package will last around 50 minutes.
If you have little children, you may wonder if your toddlers are old enough to enjoy the festival; they are. The festival is suited to children age 2 to 15yrs; each program is packaged together for age appropriate viewing.
