Shorts for Middle Ones

Various directors

For anyone over the age of eight, these short films will inform, educate and entertain with a range of stories from an imaginative history of the alphabet through to surrealist high-diving hijinks.

What happens when number-crunching factory workers discover there is more to life than black, white and grey? An underappreciated pig – with the most important job in town – makes a new friend and things change forever. A young girl, out for a walk with her grandmother, sees the world in a truly unique way in an absolutely outstanding feast of sound and colour. And how many different mothers are there in the world? How would you describe yours? One Russian boy thinks his is rather special…

Though a couple of these films are dialogue free, most of the others are in English, but we don’t rule out an occasional short with subtitles.
