Eight-year-old Ben is desperate to be a magician. His dad Koos offers to go to lessons with him and pretty soon they're performing as a father-and-son act, together with Ben's friend Sylvie. It's all going well until one day ­ abracadabra and whoops! ­ Sylvie disappears in a magic trick and won't come back. As days pass with no sign of her, Ben's happy family starts to fall apart under the strain. Now Ben must find a way to make her reappear, before his mum leaves his dad, Sylvie's parents lose it, and the reputation of magic is forever tarnished. We'll have a mysterious and magical surprise before the screening for everyone at ending ­ you'll have to turn up to find out what it could be! The Magicians screens at 11.30am. Glasgow Young Scot and Kidz Card holders and an accompanying adult get in free. Part of Glasgow Film Festival 2012: Youth Film Festival.
