Special Preview of new animated Family Film at Junior Galway Film Fleadh
It’s coming up to that time of year again and the Junior Film Fleadh has an early Christmas present in store for you. On Saturday 19th November at 12.00 noon in the Town Hall Theatre The JFF will host a very special preview of the family animated film Santa’s Apprentice.
This wonderful family film tells the story of an aging Santa who, as his retirement approaches, is reluctant to leave the role which has brought so much joy to children the world over, but rules are rules and he must train someone to replace him. The lucky winner, to be chosen from among millions of children, must be named Nicholas, be an orphan and have a pure heart. On the other side of the planet, there is a little boy who is a perfect match, but his lack of self-confidence and fear of heights make him a poor contestant. Will Santa agree to step down, and help his apprentice take his place?
This magical animation is an ideal way to get into the Christmas spirit and will enchant children and, let’s be honest, adults of all ages. So get your hand-knit woolly jumpers (reindeer design optional), those socks your auntie gave you last year and kick off the festive season early with this very special screening of Santa’s Apprentice.
Santa’s Apprentice is a co-production of Cartoon Saloon, Avril Stark Entertainment and Gaumont.
Released in France in 2010. Due for theatrical release in Ireland.
