Screening this weekend, Saturday 11th October to be precise, as part of the 58th BFI London Film Festival is new French animated adventure ‘Yellowbird’.

Billed as a film for “all ages” it tells the story of a teeny bird called… Yellowbird. A bit of an introvert who’s never left his nest, having no family and been raised by a ladybug called… Ladybug. He seems an unlikely hero then when he decides to help lead a migrating team of birds get to Africa. Tiny Yellowbird has to overcome all his emotional problems or see his expedition become a failure! It looks like it could be cute fun
