Curated by TIFF Kids International Film Festival

This assortment of animated shorts from around the world has been carefully selected for our youngest audiences. From a little lamb who baaa-lks at the herd mentality to a toe-tappin’ bovine Broadway number, these tales teach lessons in friendship, family, caring, cooking, and growing.
