Our festival does not forget about its youngest viewers. As in previous years, we have prepared a wide range of events for children. Our programme includes screenings of full-length animations and workshops.
Full-length animations: “In the Forest of Huckybucky” and “Richard the Stork”
„In the Forest of Huckybucky” (2016)
The Huckybucky forest is a nice place to live for all animals. Among them there is quite a large group of mice supported by Claus Climbermouse and Morten Wood Mouse. However, the forest is governed by the brutal law of nature and smaller animals need to watch out for much bigger predators. Particularly dangerous is Marvin, the fox, who loves to hunt – seemingly – defenseless mice. Animation that teaches solidarity, friendship and empathy.
A family film for kids over 6.
Dyrene i Hakkebakkeskogen
dir. Rasmus A. Sivertsen, sc. Karsten Fullu, Norway 2016, animation, 75 min.
„Richard the Stork” (2017)
Orphaned as a chick and raised by storks, Riko, a sparrow, firmly believes that he himself is… a stork. He discovers the truth about his origin only in the migration season, when his foster parents – worried that Riko will not survive the journey – forbid him to fly to Africa. This, however, does not discourage Riko, who decides to show the world that he really is a stork and follows the flock. New friends will support him on the way south – an eccentric owl Olga, and a narcissistic parrot Kiki, who dreams about becoming a disco star. In their company “the smallest stork in the world” will discover that small sparrows are created to aim high!
A family film with Polish dubbing.

Animation workshops for children
The workshops run by Piotr Szczepanowicz will be devoted to stop motion animation (cut outs, plasticine) made in front of the camera. We would like to present children of all ages the possibilities of creating animated worlds, on their own or together with others, and to encourage
them to be creative in the field which gives them unlimited possibilities of artistic expression. During the workshops the children will learn about the possibilities of animation and the ways they could use them at their own homes on the basis of selected film examples. Together we will also make our own animated production.
Group from 5 to 7 years
Younger children will be shown how to make a stop motion animation with the use of a phone or tablet. Together we will make a short film, in which the characters will be the Moomins (the latest production of the Animoon Studio Moomins at Christmas)
Group from 8 to 10 years
Older children will be shown the whole variety of creative possibilities. Every child will have a chance to become a Youtuber and make a film which will best describe him or her (a kind of a vlog on Youtube).
Sing up at: firstname.lastname@example.org till 24.11.2017.
Number of seats limited!
