Details of the 2017 Fantastic Flix programme are available here.

ADIFF is delighted to announce the return of Fantastic Flix for a second year with an exciting line-up of films for young people alongside a very special visit from beloved children’s author, Dame Jacqueline Wilson.

During ADIFF 2016 the strand saw a successful line-up of films and guests including Zootropolis, Kung Fu Panda, Antboy, Brothers and My Name is Emily with (Harry Potter star) Evanna Lynch.

On July 13th 2016 in advance of the release of the hotly anticipated DISNEY•PIXAR sequel, FINDING DORY ADIFF hosted an exclusive Irish Gala Screening as part of our newest Festival strand for young people, Fantastic Flix.

Director Andrew Stanton (Finding Nemo, Wall-E) and Producer Lindsey Collins (John Carter) were in attendance, where the Festival’s lifetime achievement award, The Volta Award, was given to Andrew for his spectacular contribution to cinema and the world of animation, direction and screening-writing, through his near 27 years’ experience at Pixar.

The next Festival in February 2017 will see Fantastic Flix graduating into its sophomore year, with an expanding programme of high quality Irish and International titles, workshops and side-events curated not just to entertain children and parents, but also to provide young audiences with access to a greater range of cultural cinema and filmmaking talent through a unique Festival experience.

We look forward to seeing you and your children at next year’s Festival!
