Anima Saturdays: Season 2017 - 2018

Flagey and Anima have joined forces to offer the kids eight exceptional appointments. Eight afternoons' entertainment to watch an animated feature or a programme of animated short films, followed by a little snack and an initiation workshop into various animation processes for a group of 25 youngsters.

The workshops, reserved exclusively for kids over 5 and presented in French and Dutch, will be hosted by the JEF association and the children will be able to try their hands at making their own little films.

Once again, we've rooted out some sneak peeks and never-before-seen films for this season, either in French or without dialogue (indicated with a *), so that kids speaking any language can enjoy them...

Beginning of the film at 2 pm, Studio 5, Flagey

Film: €5

Film + snack + workshop: €10

We advise reserving in advance!
