Scotland's International Film Festival for Young Audiences features screenings, creative workshops and Shorts for Tinies
Discovery Film Festival: Scotland's International Film Festival for Young Audiences, returns to Dundee for its 14th year. The festival screens international films for ages 0–19, accompanied by activities, creative workshops inspired by the films and daily school screenings.
The festival opens with Abulele, a story of a young Israeli boy and his furry monster pal, and closes with a preview screening of new anime feature Lu Over the Wall, which just won the award for Best Feature Film at the 2017 Annecy International Animated Film Festival and is shown in partnership with Scotland Loves Anime.
The programme features four UK or Scottish premieres; Not Without Us!, a documentary following 16 children from 14 countries on their journeys to school; Fanny's Journey, telling the true story of a young girl who sets out with her siblings on a dangerous journey during the Second World War; As You Are, a 1990s-set teen drama that deals with family, friendship and mystery; and Room 213, a spooky tale suitable for ages 10+ which also forms part of DCA's annual Dundead Halloween horror programme.
