In Short, Europe: Loving Encounters

The programme looks at unusual connections and situations where a relationship just works. Whether it is by chance as in Cat & Bird where an unlikely alliance is formed or whether it is a working relationship as in Cuckoo ! where a lonely man inside a cuckoo clock finds meaning in his life in work as a human alarm reminding an older lady to take her pills. There is much to be enjoyed in this programme of animation, documentary and fiction.

Aimed at families and children of 10 years and above with an emphasis on comedy. Please note two have the films have subtitles.

The screening will be followed by a panel discussion with the filmmakers
