Wild, weird and wonderful animation from five continents will keep you guessing and tickle your funny bones.  Watch out when newspaper headlines come alive in Inspector Street and giggle when a group of garbage bins try to teach an old dumpster some new tricks (Eco Binz). Then celebrate when Alfred’s new music student goes for the gold trophy (Alfred & Anna).

BAM provides age recommendations as a resource for parents based on responses from our children’s focus group. We encourage you to use these recommendations in planning your family’s festival experience!
