This Festival was founded in 2009
Little Rock People is a Children's Film Festival that is celebrating its 8th edition.
Our programme is non compromising, non patronising and always amazing.
We cater for kids between 3 and 14, dividing the selection into two groups (between 3-7 and 7-14) within the same night.
We would love to have your film at our screening.
Our festival takes place at the old cemetery, with smoke machines between the tombs, vampire teeth sweets and kids parties after the screenings.
