Official Selection: Family Friendly

Although designed for youngsters, each of these films touches upon a breadth of emotions and offers wider layers of meaning for adults and carers alike. From animations to comedies, the range of screenings available proves that film can be accessed from the earliest of ages.

In a narrative about love triumphing over fear, Lynx & Birds follows the story of two birds in an Attenborough-esque mockumentary that reveals a chink in the food chain. When the birds come face to face with a fearful predator, the Lynx, there is a surprising turn of events that’s sure to warm the cockles.

Lynx & Birds is screening as part of Family Friendly 1: Next Generation. For the full programme, click here.

Tickets are now available for ASFF 2018, running 7-11 November. For more information, click here.
