Animation Dingle Festival are proud to announce a weekend filled of family entertainment. The annual festival will take place from 22 – 25 March 2018. From dazzling originals to enchanting adaptations, children and parents alike will have a variety of screenings and events to attend.
Christmas in Dingle
St. James’ Church will be dressed out with a Christmas tree and Santa will also attend this very special screening of Angela’s Christmas from Brown Bag Films, an animated Christmas family film based on the children’s book Angela & The Baby Jesus by Pulitzer Prize winner Frank McCourt. Angela is a bright, compassionate and imaginative six-year-old girl, who worries that the Baby Jesus will be cold in the manger in the church.
Determined to bring him home to warm up, she sets off on a humorously heart-pounding adventure through the gas-lit streets of Limerick on Christmas Eve. When Angela’s mother finds the Baby Jesus tucked up in Angela’s bed, she marches Angela and the family back to church, where they find the priest and a policeman searching for the Baby.
There will be a series of Christmas themed animated shorts also from Brown Bag Films including the Oscar nominated classic Give Up Yer Aul Sins.
Santa Claus will be flying in from the North Pole to meet the children and deliver an early Christmas present from Disney.

We’re Going on a Bear Hunt
Based on the bestselling children’s book by Michael Rosen and Helen Oxenbury, We’re Going on a Bear Hunt follows siblings Stan, Katie, Rosie, Max, the baby, and Rufus the dog, who decide one day to go on an adventure through whirling snowstorms, oozing mud, and dark forests in search of bears. But when Rosie and Rufus become separated from the rest of the family, it turns out that bear-hunting is a bit more challenging than they expected!
The screening includes a special reading of the beloved children’s book and an activity sheet.
Screening with We’re Going on a Bear Hunt, this beautifully animated short film sees two travellers return to a place crossed by stars and clouds, where love is at the beginning of everything.
