Shorts for Wee Ones 2019


This collection of short films is a wonderful mix of stories and characters from around the world – France, Sweden, Switzerland, Germany and the USA – and offers a wide variety of styles and techniques to entertain the wee ones (and everyone else in their party!).

"These magical tales will delight children age 3+..."

We meet a mouse who wants to fly up high with the swallows, a robot who sets out to rescue a stranded whale and a tiger who has no stripes – but really wants some. A little boy is determined to have a great day out with his best friend (who just happens to be a tree) and a lion realises he just might need to lose a little weight… Plus we have the world premiere of a brand new film all about a very musical bear and his favourite footwear. Toe-tapping frivolity guaranteed!

All these short films are in English or are dialogue free. These magical tales will delight children age 3+ and are a colourful introduction to the cinema experience. For films for even younger children, see Shorts for Tinies.
