Once upon a time … there were some short films. And they were very good.
The very best films are just like the very best fairy tales. There can be moments that are a little bit frightening and a little bit sad. But there are those bits that will make you jump for joy and cause you to laugh out loud. And don’t worry – everything will show you that the good people always win in the end. For the parents out there, this is a chance to experience worlds from the point of view of children and find out that there is much more out there for the young ones to enjoy than the shows on morning television.
And for you younger audiences, this is a chance to get Mum and Dad to sit quietly (for once) while you enjoy some really good films that let you know all about other places and other people whilst also being – some might say most importantly – really fun and exciting.
