Don't try this at home! | SFF 2009

The Sydney Film Festival this morning announced its line up for this years festival.  I think the highlight of the kids films this year will be The Fox and the Child (Le Renard et L'efant), directed by Luc Jacquet  (March of the Penguins).   I would have liked to see more live action films for kids -  I am having an animation overload at the moment.  Take the family to see one or all films  and support children's cinema within the festival. 

Dir Henry Selick | USA | 100 minutes | 3D Animation  | Australian Premiere

Based on the on the book by Neil Gamain, Coraline is the first stop motion film shot in stereoscopic 3D. The unique visual journey follows the fearless Coraline as she discovers a parallel universe behind a secret door.
