CAF 2024 SHORTS 1:


There’s nothing more important than the connections formed throughout our lives and the meals shared together. From our doting parents, romantic partners, old school mates, to the deep bonds we have with our pets; there’s no denying they make us who we are, feeding our inspiration and helping shape our perspective of the world around us.


Peas in a Pod is a program that highlights 11 distinct films featuring best friend adventures and school rivalries, the love pets have for their owners, to the complicated relationships some of us might have with our parents. By the end of the screenings, these films will have you calling your BFF and wanting to rush home to give your pets the biggest kiss and cuddle.


Does dim byd pwysicach na’r cysylltiadau a ffurfiwyd drwy gydol ein bywydau a’r prydau a rennir gyda’n gilydd. O'n rhieni anwesol, partneriaid rhamantus, hen ffrindiau ysgol, i'r cysylltiadau dwfn sydd gennym gyda'n hanifeiliaid anwes; ni ellir gwadu eu bod nhw’n ein gwneud ni pwy ydyn ni, gan fwydo ein hysbrydoliaeth a helpu i lunio ein persbectif o’r byd o’n cwmpas.
