Pens to Lens pre-movie short: THE PERFECT FRIEND (Written by Rosalie Anderson, Directed by Emily Polk)

With a compelling range of styles and themes, Kid Flicks Two offers clever, thought-provoking films sure to inspire audiences ages 8+ to expand their horizons. In the Grand Prize award-winner Game (USA), AJ has the drive to excel but must push through obstacles to get there. Meanwhile, teamwork takes on different stripes when an odd couple of bears are forced to work together in the hilarious stop-motion short Poles Apart (UK). Plus, the CG-animated wonder Gokurōsama (France) bridges cultures and generations by showing us that even in an automated age, a little human touch can still work wonders. (2016/2017/2018, Various Directors, Various Countries, in English & with English subtitles (Cat Days & Hello Salaam) or no dialogue, 79 min., Recommended ages: 8+, DCP)
