A delightful, truly international smorgasbord of family-friendly short films, hailing from Belarus, Bulgaria, Czech Republic, France, Germany, Norway, Switzerland and Russia and a full range of stories and animation styles. Curated by Discovery Film Festival, Scotland's International Film Festival for Young Audiences.

There’s an ice cream-loving sloth, a lynx that comes out of the forest for some night-time fun in a deserted townscape and a cat that isn’t too successful when it comes to playing draughts. Four Arctic hares are called out on an emergency rescue mission in the frozen North and a wee wolf discovers the power of imagination to keep him warm in the winter winds. Our old friend The Little Bird is back, this time making friends with some bees, whilst a very musical spider has to come up with a new plan when their web is suddenly broken.

Suitable for viewing by all the family, but especially children aged 3+, most of the shorts are in English or dialogue-free, with one incorporating brief Russian dialogue and English subtitles.
