Filmmagie: kijken en maken

Discover the magic of film through six short animated films from Eye’s rich collection. Animals play a leading role: a hummingbird, a rabbit, a dog and a wolf. Afterwards, the children can draw their own flip books and learn how to get still pictures to move (6-10 years).

    It's a nice sunny day. Mister Paper goes out for a walk. He cuts everything he needs from a few old newspapers. A sun hat, and a dog to keep him company. It’s going to be a lovely day!

    Grote Wolf & Kleine Wolf (Rémi Durin, FR 2018, 13')

    Big Wolf lives very happily alone under a magnificent tree, until one day a little wolf moves in with him. The little wolf eats all his food, messes up his things, snores. In short: he’s a big pain. But after Little Wolf has gone, Big Wolf realises how much he misses his little comrade.

  • still from Hoanoe (Marten Visser, NL, 2020)

    Hoanoe (Marten Visser, NL 2020, 4')

    A hummingbird drinks water from a smoking volcano. A ladybird flies through the air clutching a jellyfish in its paws. A snail climbs a huge mountain range. A short animation about nature, but with a twist.

  • still from My Happy End (Milen Vitanov, DE 2008)

    My Happy End (Milen Vitanov, DE 2007, 5')

    Cheerful cut-out animation about a dog and his tail. All dogs chase their own tails. One day a dog manages to catch his tail. They become best friends, dramatically changing this dog’s life.

  • Flipboekje maken (30')

    After the film programme you can make your own flip book in the cinema. A flip book is a little book with a small drawing that changes a tiny bit on each page. When you flip through the pages of the book with your thumb, these drawings zoom past really fast. The individual pictures blur together like a film. So with your flip book you are really making your own mini-animated film!
