Films are shown with the original audio and English subtitles (without Ukrainian subtitles). 

Everyone wants to be not like everyone else. Especially in childhood, especially when one thinks that everything around is against. But is it possible without the support of the closest people, as one can share his or her oddities only with the loved ones.

Films from the KISFF for Kids program are about friendship which supports and inspires, as well as about the aspiration to be yourself, in spite of all the obstacles.

The Little Bird and the Caterpillar

Lena von Döhren

Switzerland / 2017, 5 min

 

The little bird has plenty of peace and quiet high up in its tree, at least until an unexpected guest shows up. The brash caterpillar’s keen on devouring the green leaves that the little bird has cared for so tenderly. During the ensuing showdown, the two fail to notice that someone else is hard on their heels, and this character’s craving a more savoury snack.
