The best local and international children’s shorts, animations and child-produced films!


In 2014 Little Big Shots celebrates ten years of fantastic, fun-filled cinema for kids!

Being ten means that you have an awful lot of experience, and this years' festival is no exception, offering the best local and international children's shorts, animation, documentaries and - amazingly - child-produced films. With a range of programs on offer for different age groups from 2 - 15 years, Little Big Shots is inspiring, and meaningful, stimulating discussions around cultural diversity, language, emotional intelligence and human values.  Better still, they make kids laugh, whoop, think and create.

Join us for our special opening night screening at the Gala Opening Night red carpet event on Friday 5 September. Tickets are limited. Dress to impress!
