Short Films One

Runtime: 75 min. | Recommended Ages: 5+
For ages 5 and up, Short Films One features films filled with wonder, whimsy, and awe to deepen kids’ growing appreciation for cinema through an inventive range of storytelling approaches. A tiny story with a big tale of acceptance at its heart, Tulip captures a wondrous world in miniature through its meticulously crafted stop-motion animation. You’ll be equally dazzled when the magic of kindness takes center stage in To: Gerard, the new Oscar short-listed film from DreamWorks. And if kooky tales are what you’re craving, you’ll flip your lid over the hilariously absurd split personalities of Matilda and the Spare Head.
