Discovery Shorts 2018

Discovery Family Film Club

It has become something of a tradition here that on the eve of the new Discovery Film Festival we give a final farewell to the short films that were the hits of the previous year. For the last ten months, the 2018 collections of Shorts For Wee and Middle Ones have been travelling across the UK, appearing at other venues, festivals and summer events, and now we are bringing them back to DCA for one last outing before they leave our screens, ready for the 2019 collections to emerge in their place.

"Meet a penguin whose attempts to serve drinks at a birthday party lead to utter chaos..."

We’ll meet a penguin whose attempts to serve drinks at a birthday party lead to utter chaos, a large green bird who has some difficulties with a big bell and a very frisky egg and see how an old, forgotten Rubik’s Cube finds a whole new audience. Plus we’ll watch relationships develop through the power of sport (gymnastics and basketball), and – for the final time – see screen giant Samuel L. Jackson give us his finest, funkiest, flashiest Tyrannosaurus Rex in a truly jaw-dropping, mindboggling and foot-tapping four minutes!

Whether you saw some of them last year, or if this is your first time, don’t miss this chance to see this special collection of the best of the fest.
