Out of This World
REDCAT International Children’s Film Festival

If you’ve ever imagined a place beyond the sunset, or a parallel universe where the rules don’t apply and dreams come true, then this program of animated and live action shorts is for you! You’ll encounter runaway piggy banks, gargantuan sheep and helpful grizzlies, picture books with people trapped inside, eyeglasses that work like movie screens, piano teachers that burst into operatic arias, and a girl scout who goes to supernatural lengths to sell cookies. All this, plus a glowing parable about a caterpillar trapped in a collector’s jar, and the thrilling story of a young girl who befriends the man in the moon!
