SQUARE EYES AT THE 2012 NEW ZEALAND
INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVALS

Square Eyes is delighted to continue its association with the most brilliant 'NEW ZEALAND INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL'. This year we are once again proud to support films for 'All Ages' within the wider festival programme. These are:

'LE TABLEAU', a captivating animated French-language fable about a group of painted characters in search of their true colours; 'A MONSTER IN PARIS', a lively animated love letter to Paris, featuring a kooky inventor, his projectionist best friend, a sassy singer and a musically gifted giant flea; 'FIRST POSITION', the multiple Audience Award winning doco about six astoundingly gifted, unbelievably disciplined young dancers; 'TOONS FOR TOTS' and 'ANIMATION FOR KIDS', not one, but two collections of funny, engaging, and wonderfully intriguing short films; and 'FROM UP ON POPPY HILL', the latest superbly animated classic from legendary Studio Ghibli.

Don't miss the chance to see these terrific films on the big screen, just as they were meant to be seen. Further details here.
