Showcomotion - A Film Festival for Young People

For the next two weeks, the independent cinema, Showroom in Sheffield will be host to Showcomotion - a film festival for young people.



As a film lover myself, I'm quite excited to know this is happening in my home town and am grateful that local kids will have the opportunity to see and learn about film. And with tickets at only £2.00 each, my kids are looking forward to a few cinema trips!


In addition to screenings of international child-friendly film, Showcomotion offers educational workshops, several of which are open to the public (plus some organized activities for schools). Check here for a PDF programme of events.

Opening today with a workshop and screening of Diary of a Wimpy Kid 2, films will be on offer every day until the 29th of May and bookings can be made via the Showroom website.

We're most looking forward to seeing Arietty - the latest animated endeavor from Studio Ghibli:



If you live in Sheffield or close by, be sure to make pay the Showroom Cinema a visit soon!
