Our ever-popular family programme once again brings you the most exciting new animation from around the world, suitable for all ages. By turns daft, silly, sad, spooky and uplifting, this programme will showcase a wide range of stunning animation techniques and take you on journeys you never thought possible. 

The screening will be followed by a brief specially-commissioned masterclass with animator Kate Burton, who will demonstrate some of the techniques in the films.
