Our Family Friendly screenings have been created for kids by kids!

These screenings are created by a group of local children and young people who have viewed, reviewed and then programmed the selection of short films to be shown at this year’s festival. This unique approach to creating our children’s programme allows us to present the best possible line-up of top family friendly short and animated films.  In Partnership with Into Film.
