The London Children’s Film Festival (LCFF) runs until 25 November and this year's festival will take place at the Barbican and at cinemas across the capital.
As always, the programme brings an exciting selection of films and workshops to families and children alike. Here’s a run down of some of the festival highlights:
- 22 November, 5.30pm - Enchanted Gala preview at Stratford East Picturehouse
The film will be introduced by New City Primary School choir, who will sing some classic Disney songs. There’s also a fancy dress parade to look forward to, competitions and the opportunity for children to have their photo taken in front of the Enchanted display.
- 25 November, 11.30am - Hide-n-Seek at Cineworld Wood Green
This screening will be preceded by a drop-in Indian music workshop where children will have the opportunity to learn to sing Indian songs and take part in an Indian drumming workshop.

Come along to Greenwich dressed as your favourite toy, join the fancy dress parade and meet Truly Scrumptious; or learn how to make toot sweets with top chefs at the Barbican.
- A panel of children from all over the capital form the First Light Movies Young Jurors. They will cast their vote for Best Feature Film from the official selection titles, as well as posting their reviews on the festival website.
- Young film-makers will have the chance to see their films on the big screen, as a specially selected short film made by young people will be shown before each feature.
