'SNAP' | Thomas G. Murphy, Hilere' | Belgium

This year we’ve gone all out and put together TWO programs for two different age groups. Too good! Enchanting, engaging and imaginative animation without a toy ad or product placement in sight. Animation the way it’s meant to be.

Plus, we have a very special third kids program - the amazing collection of Koji Yamamura’s Kids animation.
