Qual­ity movies for the lit­tle ones

The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - News -

Sick of watch­ing your chil­dren ham­mer away at those An­gry Birds? In search of a more cere­bral al­ter­na­tive to Harry Pot­ter? Get the brood down to Dublin’s Ir­ish Film In­sti­tute, which is, this week­end, host­ing an im­pres­sive Fam­ily Fes­ti­val.

Pre­sented in as­so­ci­a­tion with Tem­ple Bar Cul­tural Trust’s Made in Tem­ple Bar, the fes­ti­val com­prises a di­vert­ing line-up of screen­ings and spe­cial events. You can beat the traf­fic (ho ho!) and catch an early un­veil­ing of Pixar’s Cars 2. Also seek out over­seas fam­ily pic­tures such as the French en­ter­tain­ment On the Sly and the Ger­man flick The Croc­o­diles Strike Back. In a fresh in­no­va­tion, the sub­ti­tles of those pic­tures will be read aloud by “an ex­pe­ri­enced reader”.

Events in­clude Synth East­wood Makes Your Day, a col­li­sion of art, mu­sic and tech­nol­ogy, and Mu­sic Mo­tion, a work­shop in­volv­ing the cre­ation of a stop-mo­tion video for a new David Kitt num­ber. The Fam­ily Fes­ti­val runs un­til Sun­day and de­tails can be found at ifi.ie.
