Australia’s international film festival for kids is coming to the Sydney Opera House

Little Big Shots is Australia’s only international film festival for kids. It’s currently touring the country and has been announced to take over the Sydney Opera House from Friday 5 August through Sunday 7 August.

The weekend event will feature the best local and international shorts, animations and documentaries for children (including some that have been made by kids). Little Big Shots will have a variety of daytime programs for children ranged from toddler to tween, and encourages adults to attend to see these short films across the eight programs.

Friday night kicks off with the ‘Best of the Fest’, including an opening night Red Carpet Gala and kid-friendly disco. This event is for children five years and up, including parents who can join their kids on the dance floor.

Bridgette Van Leuven (Head of Children, Families and Creative Learning at the Sydney Opera House) says: “Little Big Shots is quite simply the best film festival for kids I’ve seen. Every year it gives kids the opportunity to be inspired by the best film, documentary and animation experts from home and abroad. Plus, the child-produced videos perfectly sum up what we at the Opera House know to be true – kids can do anything we can do, and better!”

Little Big Shots is committed to screening the best child-made films from Australia, and has a focus on diverse short films from across Australia and the world. Tickets cost $18 plus booking fees.
