Dag van de Korte Film - Kinderprogramma
On the shortest day of the year, 21 December, we celebrate Short Film Day. With a special children’s program for age 4+, children are treated to a program packed with the best European short animation. On a bicycle or a motorbike, at the bottom of the sea or in the forest, this program takes you to the most beautiful places you have ever seen!
