This carefully selected programme for our littlest audience contains 12 of the best, most recent wonderful short animated films, full of joy, from all around the world.

This programme contains several cheeky, loveable animals in all sorts of mad adventures.

Percy Cat is looking forward to a holiday in ‘Cat Lake City’, Sam’s Dream tells of a mouse who wants to fly with the birds, a small tiger goes on a long journey to find his stripes and neighbours Pig and Duck learn that friendship is the most important thing to cherish.


Join us in the Cinema 2 & 3 Foyer at 10am get creative with illustrator & author Lizzy Stewart, she will be running a drop-in drawing workshop inspired by the animated short films. Open to all children with their families.

Age recommendation 4+

Please note LIAF 2019 pass holders will not be admitted to this event. 

Adults can only come if they’re bringing a child, and children can only come along if accompanied by an adult. If you’re over 18, we’re afraid being a ‘big kid’ doesn’t count.
