From Arthouse to sing along Moana, your chance to downshift and relax.

Orange Shade film singalong workshops

Orange Shade film singalong workshops

Our friends over at Orange Shade Productions specialise in maximising audience enjoyment of our favourite musical classics and new smash hits. Last year we were playing fast and loose with noise curfews when they put Jungle Book on the box! Learn the bare necessities required for shining in a singalong in these original workshop.

Orange Shade presents Moana

Orange Shade presents Moana

Moana is an adventurous teenager sailing out on a daring mission to save her people. Together with the once mighty demigod Maui, she sails across the open ocean on an action-packed voyage, encountering enormous monsters and impossible odds. One such monster is Tamatoa, an evil king crustacean driven to ill intentions by his materialistic obsession – an instant favourite Disney villain for us! Plus, you get to singalong with Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson as Maui. How can you say no to that?!

Orange Shade presents The Greatest Showman

Orange Shade presents The Greatest Showman

Perhaps the ultimate family singalong film, The Greatest Showman tells the story of the orphaned and disrespected P.T. Barnum, a brilliant showman on a mission for fame. But when he gambles his circus, his wife and daughters and all his money on the Swedish opera star Jenny Lind, things become treacherous for Barnum. Will he leave everything he's got behind?

Neil Brand Silent Films

Neil Brand Silent Films

A ‘silent film musical accompanist’. As job titles go, that’s up there with some of the best. Neil Brand has been in the business for over thirty years and performs regularly in London at the Barbican and BFI National Film Theatre. Charlie Chaplin’s Easy Street? Neil’s written a score for that. Hitchcock’s Blackmail? He’s only gone and scored that too. If you love your flicks and listening to live music, why not mix the two?

Given

Travelling around the world with your kids - a romantic thought. One that would probably present more than a few problems in reality but do suspend your disbelief for 75 minutes of this deeply moving film. Given is an utterly lovely exploration of a young boy’s understanding of life through his familial bonds and their reverence for nature, featuring wave after wave of visually stunning earthscapes.

A Life in Waves

A Life in Waves explores the life and innovations of composer and electronic music pioneer, Suzanne Ciani. From her earliest days learning the piano to her successes in the world of New Age music and her recent re-connection with her beloved Buchla synthesiser (Suzanne would LOVE the Deer Shed science tent), the film is a journey into Suzanne's mind, offering a feminine glimpse into the often complicated world of electronic music.

Flim Nite presents Finding Nemo

Flim Nite presents Finding Nemo

I guess we could just simply screen the classic Pixar film but that wouldn’t quite do justice to the adventurous nature of Nemo, Marlon and Dory now, would it? Instead, we’ve teamed up with Manchester-based arts company Flim Nite to retell Finding Nemo through performance poetry, comedy, spoken word, music and more!

Lu Over the Wall

Lu Over the Wall

Kai is talented but adrift, spending his days sulking in a small fishing village after his family moves from Tokyo. When his classmates invite him to play the keyboard in their band, their practice sessions bring an unexpected guest: Lu, a young mermaid whose singing causes humans to compulsively dance - whether they want to or not. As Kai spends more time with Lu, he finds he is able to tell her what he is really thinking, and a bond begins to form. Pokémon aside, young kids don’t get too many opportunities to experience anime motion pictures – highly recommended!

My Life as a Courgette

My Life as a Courgette

My Life as a Courgette, or ‘…as a Zucchini’ for our American friends, is about the power and resilience young people. After the sudden death of Zucchini’s mother, he is befriended by a police officer, Raymond, who accompanies him to his new foster home, filled with other orphans his age. He struggles at first, but with Raymond's help and his newfound friends, Zucchini eventually learns to trust and love, as he searches for a new family of his own. From the Up school of emotional rollercoasters, this beautiful stop motion animation film is sure to warm the hearts of the whole family.

20,000 Leagues Under the Sea

20,000 Leagues Under the Sea

Since Baldersby Park has a (not-so) grizzly monster of its own, we thought 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea would be ideal for a screening at Deer Shed 9. Join Professor Pierre M. Aronnax (Paul Lukas) and his assistant Conseil (Peter Lorre) in nineteenth century San Francisco on their expedition to search for a giant sea monster attacking ships in the Pacific Ocean.

Aesthetica Short Film Festival

It's a hotbed for fresh ideas and talent discovery and a destination to experience the power and craft of cinema, and is led by the same creators of this gorgeously glossy art, design and photography magazine. We’ve teamed up with Aesthetica to screen the top family friendly flicks from the local festival at Deer Shed 9.

Wishing Box (Dir. Wenli Zhang & Nan Li)

After mishearing a pair of fishermen (John Nettles and Brian Bovell) talking about the superior flood barriers in The Netherlands, Noah devises an escape plan to ‘Never Land’. The only person who takes an interest in his plan is Katie (Emmy Marriott), Noah’s wild-hearted next-door neighbour. Noah's parents (Marcus Brigstocke and Keeley Hawes) think his compulsion to turn off taps is foolish, but even they can't deny the growing storms that are threatening their little fishing village.

Being Ernest (Dir. Victoria Fistes)

Being Ernest (Dir. Victoria Fistes)

Ernest is a 9 year-old boy who happens to be blind since birth. A curious interview with him granted us the opportunity to feel life from his perspective and share it with the world. Through this short animated film, we attempt to illustrate how Ernest experiences intangible concepts, such as colours, dreams and memories.

Perched (Dir. Liam Harris)

Hamish Fint, a crotchety old man used to a life of seclusion inside his submarine balanced precariously atop a mountain, struggles to maintain equilibrium when an unwelcome visiting seagull rocks his world.

The Durnham’s Drizzle (Dir. Lois Bryant)

The Durnham’s Drizzle (Dir. Lois Bryant)

What will it take to get the distracted Durnhams appreciating life? This is a film about cups of tea, pessimism, little things with wings that fly and consumerism. Oh, and naked-dancing.
