Stap maar op mijn bezemsteel en andere verhaaltjes (5+)

Edition 2022 Kidsproof
A witch, a giant rock creature, an exiled troubadour, a neat-freak octopus, a frightened girl ... This charming short film compilation - with the Oscar-nominated Room on the Broom and four brand new short stories - shows surprising friendships in different shapes and colours.

Yes, a witch can have a really big heart! Even though it is sometimes very cramped, the witch in Room on the Broom always tries to find a way to fit more passengers on her broom. Her sullen cat doesn't really like this, but it is thanks to these passengers that the newfound friends are able to escape the dangerous dragon that is chasing them. Based on the picture book of the same name by Julia Donaldson, the film received an Oscar nomination in 2014 and is nog being screened together with four short stories about friendship. In Luce and the Rock by Belgian animator Britt Raes, a little girl tries to lead a giant rock creature back home. Sounds Between the Crowns proves the power of music, while Ink shows a very neat octopus. And in I'm Not Afraid!, the frightened Vanja turns into a dangerous tiger to conquer her fear!

Room on the Broom is an animated delight; a story of a kind witch who invites a surprising collection of animals to join her on her broom, much to the frustration of her cat. Joined by four other charming stories, the film proves that the best magic just lies within your friendships.
