Kids Animation
9 April, 13:00 - Piatruś Broŭka Literature Museum, 30, Karl Marx Str.

A little grey lynx is learning to communicate with its fellows, an unusual girl is trying to decorate the boring black-white world, and a little penguin is searching for the way home on a rough drifty night. Many an adventure await them on their way! Yet, they do not lose their hearts: each of them manages to find their own way out of the situations, thus gaining invaluable experience. One of those composing this programme was a child: the six-year-old Maya, the daughter of the festival coordinators, was watching and selecting the films together with her parents. The choice of the winner will also be made by the viewers themselves - we want children to have the voice.
