This week the Film Archive has a fantastic school holiday programme of films - so drag your kids away from Disney and sit them down for this international compilation. The Archive also opens its doors to vampires (you could even be transformed into one!) for the German Film Festival. Next week the focus travels to Fiji, for Fiji Language Week.
