Tired of rewatching Moana, Frozen or (insert popular animated film title here) for the umpteenth time with your little ones? Grab the kids and hit Golden Village cinemas as there are eight magical, lesser-known animated worlds to discover at the first ever Kids Film Fiesta from November 3 to 11! Seven of the animated titles have never been screened before in Singapore.

On top of just screening the films, GV has also planned two Family Day events where you can participate in workshops, snap photos, bring home goodie bags and even win prizes!

Curated specifically with kids in mind, the Kids Film Fiesta kicks off with Foodiverse in Mandarin, which is written and directed by animation veteran Chen Liaoyu. Set in the world of foodies, heroes Miss Penny (dumpling) and Mr Podge (steamed bun) will need to work together to save the food universe. On Saturday, November 3, kids can take part in the Penny clay keychain making workshop, bring back a goodie bag and win attractive prizes at the Foodiverse Family Day event.

Kids Film Fiesta also features the Oscar-nominated two-part series The Gruffalo and The Gruffalo’s Child, winner of Best of The Fest at the 2010 Chicago’s International Children’s Film Festival and the Audience Award Short Films (ages 3-6) at the 2012 New York International Children’s Film Festival respectively. To conclude the Kids Film Fiesta, little fans of The Gruffalo will get to meet the mascot on Sunday, November 11 at The Gruffalo & The Gruffalo’s Child Family Day event. You’ll get to win movie merchandise and photo opportunities with The Gruffalo!

Another two titles to look out for are Stan Lee’s first movies starring an Indian superhero: Chakra The Invincible: The Rise of Infinitus and Chakra The Invincible: Mystery of Mighty Girl, which feature eight-year-old Raju Rai protecting the people of Mumbai as Chakra The Invincible.

Adding to the Kids Film Fiesta’s animation line-up are four more never-been-screened in Singapore titles: Kikoriki: Déjà Vu, Picnic with Cake, No-No: Rising Waters in Underwood Springs & Other Adventures and Story Time. With online purchase  of minimum two tickets, movie goers would score a chance to win one of three sets of prizes sponsored by Brandt. The prize package includes a 26L Black Table Top Solo Microwave and a Brandt cooking class for one adult and a child valued at $499 in total.
