A festival full of animals

The 32nd edition of Cinekid is packed with productions about animals, nature and the current media jungle we live in.

Take a look at a few of the highlights from this programme below!

CineMeow: The Aristocats
A posh lady lives in Paris with her pedigree cats. When her butler finds out that she intends to leave everything she owns to the animals, he is furious. He’ll get that inheritance, one way or the other, and decides to get rid of the darn cats by kidnapping them. How will this romantic Disney classic end? 
This is part of the CineMeow marathon on Monday 22 October. Don't forget to join our Cat Karaoke with Aristocats songs!

Wild Amsterdam
City resident Abatutu the cat guides you through the streets of Amsterdam, where nature is closer than you think – you just have to keep a sharp eye out. If you do, you might see a hungry rat in a pizza box, an American crayfish boldly strolling past a fancy hotel, and herons politely waiting their turn at the market.
