Cinemini: Het kleine vogeltje

EYE’s Cinemini is open especially for preschoolers and their parents. Every Sunday, children aged 2 to 6 are treated to animation films and can play with their parents close by.

Children aged 2-6 experience their first cinema visit in EYE’s finest and cosiest film theatre. After watching special short animated films, often based on EYE’s rich collection, the children can play with light and shadow in small play tents and on a large light box supervised by De Taartrovers (The Pie Robbers, a small collective organizing interactive cultural activities for kids). 

La moufle

Clementine Robach, FR, 2014

It’s snowing. Lily and her granddad are building a bird house to help the birds survive the winter. Lily wonders where the other animals are going to live in the garden. That’s why she puts one of her warm mittens at the foot of the tree where they hung the bird house.

The Little Bird and the Squirrel

Lena von Döhren, CH, 2014

It’s autumn. There’s one last leaf hanging at the end of a long branch. The little bird wants to water it, but a playful squirrel snatches away its green watering can. The little bird runs to catch him, but there’s a fiery red fox lurking behind the tree.

The Sled

Olesya Shchukina, RU, 2016

One wintry day a little squirrel finds a sled. He soon finds out how to use it to go on exciting rides. The birds are laughing at him, but he doesn’t care. 


Siri Melchior, DE, 2010

In a colourful town, all the people and animals can whistle, except for the little bird.  

The Little Bird and the Leaf

Lena von Döhren, CH, 2012

It’s winter. At the end of a branch hangs a single leaf, which drops when a little black bird flies past it. The wind lifts the leaf and dances with it through the snowy wood. A delighted little bird joins in the fun. But the red fox behind the tree is already licking his lips.

The Little Bird and the Caterpillar

Lena von Döhren, CH, 2017

The little bird enjoys lots of peace and quiet perched high in its tree, at least until an unexpected guest shows up. The caterpillar would like to munch all the green leaves the little bird has cared for so tenderly.
