Short Film Day – Children’s Program
9 animated shorts – 56 minutes – children (and adults too!) from 6 years old
It’s a journey through Europe in nine short films, a journey through which balance and harmony take the place of disorder, injustice and solitude. The friendship between a bear and a little bird, the care of an old lady for her dog, and the motherly love of a hare for her leveret, will bring back the serenity in a world of mischievous blackbirds and warlike oranges.

The shortest day of the year is a very special day for the short film. On December 21st, people in many different countries around the world celebrate the “short format”.
The Swedish Film Institute organized the second edition of Short Film Day in Sweden (“Kortfilmsdagen”), doubling the number of participating venues from the previous year.
