23/24 Hop Film

Let your imagination take the wheel with Kid Flicks One. Whether dreaming up the fantastical: a spider's goal to capture the moon; the funny: a goose playing football; or the practical: removing a giant boulder from your village, these shorts are sure to enchant and delight all audiences (but especially our youngest!)

With animation, live action and documentary shorts from 13 countries, Kid Flicks programs offer a chance to explore new frontiers from around the world, across the street and the ever-expanding boundaries of our own perspectives. These amazing short films from around the world are sure to inspire curiosity and conversation for viewers big and small.

So grab your family, settle in and let's start the show!
