Settle in for some family-friendly short film fun, with an opportunity to make along at home...
Regular viewers will be familiar with Flatpack's family programme Colour Box, which pops up at the festival, in schools and a range of year-round events including our monthly MAC screenings. For the first time we're taking Colour Box online, giving audiences of all ages a chance to enjoy these films and activities wherever you happen to be.
As always we've gathered some brilliant animated short films from around the world, among them some absolute gems including Worms of Earth - pictured - which are only available for this special online screening. Following an hour-long screening, Colour Box wizard Emily Summers will be hosting a special workshop open to all. If you'd like to take part, start saving empty toilet rolls!
Keep your eyes peeled!
