The Athens International Children’s Film Festival chose a single key word to resound across this season’s Park Your Cinema Kids — Music!
We invite young viewers and their families to sing, dance and move to the beat of joy, adventure and friendship, with a series of all-time favorite films that exalt music in every possible way. From Sing, with the talented animal-singers who follow their dream, to the Lion King remake featuring the much loved “Hakuna Matata,” this year’s range of options offers a fun getaway from the day-to-day, as well as valuable takeaways for all ages, conveyed through melodious stories that promote free expression, understanding and perseverance to achieve any goal.
For who’s to say that the Great Lawn of the Stavros Niarchos Foundation Cultural Center isn’t also a dance floor?
Hotel Transylvania 2 (2015)
Everything seems to be changing for the better at Count Dracula’s Hotel… At last, it has opened its doors to ordinary mortals (humans). But Dracula is worried about his grandson, who seems to lack any particular vampire abilities. Mavis, on the other hand, decides to explore the possibility of a more... normal upbringing for her son in the world of regular people. In the meantime, Grandpa “Drac” seizes the opportunity to wake up the monster inside his grandson. It all comes to a head at the grand party for Dennis’s 5th birthday, where things become complicated when the forgotten, conservative great-grandfather of Dracula shows up unexpectedly. Is there anything that music can’t resolve?
