Sydneysiders, rejoice! Little Big Shots, the international film festival just for kids, is heading your way.
Little Big Shots will play at the Sydney Opera House over the weekend of August 7 and 8. With dozens of short films from right around the world in this year’s schedule, you’re up for a busy weekend, Sydney!
Among the international and Australian film premieres this year are the big screen debuts of two favourite Babyology books – Oliver Jeffers’ Lost and Found and Mo Willem’s Don’t Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus!
My own five-year-old can recommend Crazy Hair Day and Wee Dreaming, which both had him in stitches when we caught the travelling movie show in Melbourne last month.
You can also catch Deborah Mailman’s directorial debut, Ralph, alongside some twenty films actually made by kids, including award winners Brunswick Browns, a fab tale of backyard chooks, and claymation flick Anna’s Doll, made in the aftermath of Victoria’s devastating Black Saturday bushfires.
There are sessions over the weekend to suit kids aged from two to fifteen years. Tickets cost $16 per session. To book or find out more, go to the Sydney Opera House online. And don’t forget your movie snacks!
