Return to the mind of the newly teenage Riley, just as headquarters is undergoing a sudden demolition to make room for something entirely unexpected: new Emotions! Joy, Sadness, Anger, Fear and Disgust aren’t sure how to feel when Anxiety shows up, and it looks like she’s not alone! Maya Hawke lends her voice to Anxiety, alongside Amy Poehler as the voice of Joy. All tickets include a small popcorn on arrival.

There are animals in the Amazon, mysteries on an African nature reserve, science experiments in a US high school, eagles raised by chickens in China, hungry bears travelling to the north and south poles, anxious monsters in Spain and a cat in Paris. CHIFF favourites, the Moomins and Billy the Cowboy Hamster are back for more adorable adventures and the new film from the grumpy bear and adorable mouse best friends Ernest and Celestine. From heartwarming family drama to fantasy, superheroes and sporting tales, there's much to choose from. Be sure to do a deep dive into the films and start writing up that itinerary for the films to catch at CHIFF.

    The acclaimed Sirocco and the Kingdom of the Winds is a special presentation that will be showcased. It dives into the fantastical world of dreams and imagination, making it a treat for the senses. Parental guidance is required for this one as some imagery may be too intense for younger or more sensitive viewers. With many an award under its belt, this is a story of two sisters who love reading fantasy books, until one day, they fall into their favourite novel. Transformed into humanoid cats, they are separated and must find their way back to each other and the real world. They will, however, find that it's not as easy to leave their new magical world and curious friends as they thought.
