The Young and Prodigious T.S. Spivet (2013)

The Young and Prodigious T.S. Spivet is a film that can be enjoyed on many different levels: serious or playful, full of meaning or meaningless – yet at all-times entertaining.  

A Shine of Rainbows (2009)

If you are looking for a good family film for some Sunday afternoon - A Shine of Rainbows is a good pick. The film's focus is on human nature and spatiality, and its value lays in the moral lessons and the messages it transmits to its viewers.

The Confirmation is a new film which has the unmistakable feel of an independent Canadian production, slightly art-house - serious and with a narrative focusing on real-life issues.

I Declare War delivers a unique movie experience. Kids will love it – it’s tense enough to excite, yet perfectly suitable for audiences of all ages.
