2012 will be the
first year for the Framed Film Festival, a seven day season that brings a
colourful and diverse selection of international cinema to young audiences.
From toddlers to tweens, this London based event boasts screenings, workshops
and special additions all with a
youthful audience in mind.
The festival is split into two categories; families with
children ages 5-11 and focus events for the 12 to 18 year olds. There’s a
mighty assortment of films on show but this is also a great chance for young
film makers to have a bash at putting their ideas into motion as well. The
opening day of the festival is Make a Film Day, a chance for all visitors to
plan, shoot and edit your own film with the Young Film Academy.
For two dimensional enthusiasts there is a free animation
station at the venue from the 17th to the 24th of
November where you can drop by to make characters come alive with animated
drawings, stop frame and light box animation. For inspiration you can see a
special preview of French animation Ernest
and Celestine which follows the adventures of a gruff bear and a crafty
mouse. You can also catch Ansgar Niebuhr’s Princess
Lillifee & the Secret of the Unicorn, and join heroine Lotte
in her adventures with Lotte and the
animation favourites Aardman will be
landing on the 24th of November for a special workshop for pint
sized Pirates fans. Learn all about stop motion and embark on a voyage behind
the scenes of Aardman’s 2012 hit Pirates!
In and Adventure with Scientists (Main Picture).
All the films selected for the festival are international,
with highlights including Jacqueline de Geoij’s Alfie
and the Werewolf, a Dutch feature which follows a seven year old’s fluffy
transformation into a werewolf, festive fun with Oliver Dieckmann’s When Santa Fell to Earth, and Markus Rosenmüller’s powerful Wunderkinder, set during the second
