Here’s a chance to explore some imaginary worlds and fantastical places in our second selection of kids’ shorts. Full of wonderful animated adventures and heart-warming tales including The Orchestra by Mikey Hill, which imagines a world where tiny musicians follow citizens everywhere playing the soundtracks to their lives - the only problem being, the musicians are terribly out of tune... Konstantin Bronzit's Oscar-nominated film We Can't Live Without Cosmos follows two friends who dream of becoming astronauts, and Flatpack regular Leonid Shmelkov (Hop Frog) is back with the delightful and deliciously absurd A Very Lonely Rooster.
