  • Toddlers
  • $12.50 per film per person

Celebrate children in film at Classic Cinemas in Elsternwick, Lido Cinemas Hawthorn, and Cameo Cinemas Belgrave for extraordinary films for the young and young-at-heart.

Enjoy amazing events like the Kids Behind the Camera shorts session, and overcome adversity in Serbian Sundance hit The Witch Hunters. Family and friends are celebrated in Manou the Swift and Monky, and travel... accidentally to the Finnish forests in Matti and Sami and the Three Biggest Mistakes in the Universe.

Travel to the African savannah in Mia and the White Lion, and if you've got feline fever, meet reluctant investigator Marnie in Spy Cat. Solve a dino-shaped mystery in Famous Five and the Valley of Dinosaurs (plus dino Q&A), and celebrate the most magnificent short films of CHIFF at Best of the Fest. 

And as an added bonus, the festival is partnering with Little Big Shots to also present a program of short films and workshops alongside the 21 feature films from around the world.
