Every year around the same time, someone is always busy making a list and finding out who's naughty or nice. This "someone" is of course Santa Claus! So, let's get prepared and enjoy a wonderful Christmas with this year's Christmas Family Screen!
Due to popular demand, the 2nd edition of the Christmas Family Screen will be held again from 15th to 30th December. With six acclaimed international feature films and animations, a heartwarming Christmas full of excitement and fantasy is guaranteed at your doorstep.
Let's begin our journey with helping out our friend Santa. In the French production Christmas & Co. Santa is facing a big trouble when all the elves working in his toy factory fall ill and pass out. In order to search for a cure, Santa has no choice but to fly down to Earth!
While Santa is taking a risk to save his elves, kids from different parts of the world are also showing their courage and wisdom in different adventures. Take the young inventor Leonardo from the animation Leo Da Vinci: Mission Mona Lisa as an example: to safeguard his best friend's home, he begins a quest for a hidden treasure. Although his incredible inventions do help a lot, he still has to fight against a group of sinister pirates, which by no mean is an easy task.
Meanwhile, Timm Thaler, the protagonist from The Legend of Timm Thaler or The Boy Who Sold His Laughter, has mistakenly closed a deal with the devil and lost his charming laughter. Only with his friends' help and support could he stand a chance to beat the devil. Also featuring remarkable friendship and courage is Germany's favorite film series The Peppercorns and the Curse of the Black King. This time a class trip brings Mia and her classmates to a mountain ranch, where a series of mysterious accidents unfold...
Friendship can last a lifetime, and that certainly applies to Sebastian and his dog Belle. Belle & Sebastian, Friends for Life is a movie remake of the classic French TV show. With the magnificent Alps as background, Sebastian runs away with Belle this time and embarks a snowy winter journey. Last but certainly not the least, Norway's biggest box office Santa Swap – Merry Christmas Mr. Andersen reminds us the reason why we all love Christmas so much. On Christmas Eve, carpenter Andersen falls on the slippery ice and bumps into the real Santa. The two decide to swap and have the most special Christmas night.
