As Crawford Art Gallery celebrates childhood in this major survey exhibition SEEN, NOT HEARD, Cork Film Festival is delighted to partner by inviting children to SEE and HEAR the best of world cinema. This autumn, we welcome budding film fans to a fun-packed programme of Irish and international animations and short films which have been specially selected by our Festival programming team for families to experience and enjoy.
A Double Bill: The Overcoat and Mirette : A delightful double bill of two enchanting films which bring classic books to life for children aged 6+. The Overcoat is an animated adaptation of Nikolai Gogol’s classic short story about an office worker (Cillian Murphy) who saves all his money to buy a new coat, only to have fate take a ghostly hand. Mirette brings the award-winning children’s book ‘Mirette on the High Wire’ to life, featuring BAFTA award-winner Miriam Margolyes, OSCAR® nominee and TONY winner Tom Conti.
