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 year's 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, Little Big Shots is inspiring and meaningful, stimulating discussions around cultural diversity, language, emotional intelligence and human values. Better still, the films make kids laugh, whoop, think and create. 



Each performance time presents a package of several short films designed for specific age groups.
