Give and Get
Even the youngest of protagonists in our Primary-level programme face challenges making friends, fitting in, or finding the courage to stand out. This collection of shorts presents young viewers are presented with thought-provoking scenarios that will prompt discussions in character education and problem-solving.
These short films celebrate the creativity of filmmakers while inspiring audiences to reimagine discarded objects, celebrate difference, and approach problems with inventive solutions.
Rooster Doodle Doo
Although the annoyingly punctual rooster keeps the town of St-Victor motivated with his ear-splitting morning crow, one group of sleep-deprived citizens has had enough of having their slumber disrupted. But when their plan to rid themselves of the rooster causes the village's fortunes to spiral, their fellow townspeople must find the fowl before the whole town goes under!
Thunder and the House of Magic
A young abandoned cat finds a new home in the fantastical mansion of a retired magician, in this beautifully animated feature.
