Your chance to catch up with this terrific shorts program if you missed it back in September. Kid Flicks One gives a warm welcome to all budding moviegoers with this lively lineup of nine short films from around the world. Kick off the festivities with good hygiene and great dubstep in Party Mouth (US), and then let your hair—er, fur—down and hang loose in I Want to Live in the Zoo (Russia). And, even if you get into a bit of trouble, there will be someone to catch and cheer you on with the charming If You Fall (Canada).
