Christmas Move IT! Family Animators

Join us to make festive, animated messages for family and friends.

The workshop on 15 December takes place at The Cinema Museum, Lambeth (all details the same, tickets purchased via the BFI box office).

Suitable for children of all ages (children must be accompanied by their parents/grandparents/carer/adult family member)

At this wintry, festive-themed workshop, children and grown-ups (parent/grandparent/guardian) come together to have great fun making magical stop-motion animations. Your films are then posted to our YouTube channel and can be shared with family and friends to wish them season’s greetings! Look for the Move IT! playlist.

If you’d like to take your completed animation away with you, do bring a memory device with you - you can then send your animated season’s greetings to friends and family personally!

Tickets £24 for parent and one child. Siblings and additional parent/grandparent/carer £11 each.

Films created at workshops are posted to our YouTube channel once they are fully edited. We do our best to finish them on the day, but sometimes this is not possible. On rare occasions it may take up to a couple of weeks for films to be posted. Check out our YouTube channel for previous workshop films.

Workshops may be cancelled if not enough ticket sales are achieved but in the rare case of this happening you will be informed and will receive a full refund or be transferred to another activity dependent on your wishes. We apologise in advance should this be the case but will always try to keep disruption to a minimum.
