Annnnnnnd… ACTION! The 2014 Little Big Shots Film Festival is an international film festival for kids and it happens over the Queen’s Birthday long weekend in Melbourne. It will be movie watchers’ heaven with 108 of the best local and international short films and animation collections on screen at ACMI (Australian Centre for the Moving Image in Federation Square) and ArtPlay (Barrarung Marr, behind Federation Square).
The festival is turning ten years old this year and the program includes amazing short films made for kids, about kids and some made by kids from 30 countries around the world. There are shorts and packages aimed at all age groups from as young as two or three to teens to grown-up adults.
The inspiring, meaningful and fun-filled films cross a world of cultures, languages and human values – the aim is to stimulate children into thinking, creating, laughing and just soaking in and enjoying the experience. For the full program, click here.
