British animated comedy The Big Bad Fox and Other Tales at the MIFF Kids' Gala 2018.
The Melbourne International Film Festival (MIFF) rolls out the red carpet for mini film lovers on Saturday 18 August.
MIFF Kids Gala 2018
Australia’s favourite popcorn brand Cobs presents the MIFF Kids' Gala 2018 with a screening of The Big Bad Fox and Other Tales.
The Melbourne International Film Festival, founded in 1952, is one of the oldest film festivals in the world.
The festival, which this year runs from 2 - 19 August, screens hundreds of global films over the three week duration.
Now back for its 4th year, the MIFF Kids' Gala 2018 invites the youngest film buffs in your family to enjoy "“A lively trio of cartoons that are wacky, heartwarming and wise." - The Hollywood Reporter.
The Gala's animated feature The Big Bad Fox and Other Tales is a delightful animation from the Oscar nominated Director of the MIFF 2012 hit Ernest & Celestine.
The Big Bad Fox of the title unwittingly adopts three confused baby chicks, proving he isn’t all that big and he’s really not very bad. A lazy stork leaves the delivery of a baby in the care of Duck, Rabbit and Pig, but can they deliver? And in the film’s final tale, Duck, Rabbit and Pig return to embark on a hairbrained scheme to replace Santa Claus in a bid to save Christmas.
The Big Bad Fox and Other Tales
The animated movie series features a voice cast of much-loved British comedians and actors including Bill Bailey, Adrian Edmondson, Justin Edwards, Matthew Goode, Celia Imrie, Phil Jupitus, Rufus Hound and Giles New.
