Wishing Box screens at TIFF kids


This wonderful short is screening at TIFF Kids. TIFF kids prides itself on having films that will entertain children of all ages. The Reel Rascals: Stories Delight! shorts programme is specifically geared for kids from the ages of 3 -5, though there is plenty for adults to enjoy as well.

Celebrating animated short films from around the world, this programme of 14 films includes everything from a hand-drawn storybook adventure to a stop-motion story about a reckless toy car to musically infused computer-generated tales. While there are several entertaining shorts in this block of films, it is the ones made by female directors that really standout from the pack such as Wenli Zhang and Nan Li´s Wishing Box.

Wenli Zhang and Nan Li’s wonderfully amusing film Wishing Box is a tale about a pirate who finds a magical box that only seems to grant his pet monkey wishes
