HIFF - Helsinki International Film Festival
A charming selection of European animation for small film buffs! The screening is part of the free School Kino series and intended for preschool and school groups in the Helsinki Metropolitan Area. The screening is produced together with the R&A Pulpettikino On the Road project.
The screening includes the following films:
Kittie Kittie (6 min, 2021, Lithuania)
A short film, combining live images and animation, of a small caterpillar that plays with a ball of yarn and kittens, and ultimately goes through a transformation.
Luce and the Rock (13 min, 2022, the Netherlands, Belgium, France)
A giant rock is lying in the middle of a small peaceful village where Luce lives. Luce is angry: ‘Go away rock. You don’t belong here! Why are you here, anyway?’
Flat (6 min, 2021, Switzerland)
A featherless nightingale sings in the forest. Its song lulls a little bear to sleep, sooths the squirrels’ quarrels and entertains a pair of swans swimming on a pond. One day, a storm breaks out in the forest. The nightingale does not have a coat of feathers, so it catches a cold and cannot sing anymore.
Smile (7 min, 2021, Sweden)
GroM wakes up one morning to find that his mouth is stuck in a downward curve. He who wants to be happy and smile! His friend, LobO, comes for a visit and together they go on a journey to find GroM’s smile. They try magic potions and a visit to the circus, but in the end all that it takes is a hug from a good friend.
