Enjoy the spirit of the Amazon in this fun animated feature about young Ainbo and her spirit guides, Dillo, the armadillo and oversized tapir, Vac. With her rainforest home under threat, the adventurous trio sets forth to challenge this, encountering quests and adventures on the way. Already a worldwide hit, the beautiful artwork and characterisation combine to deliver a topical message for young viewers.

Save the planet! 

Just as Ainbo tries to save her environment, we’re all being encouraged to do small things to protect the world around us. In association with Dublin Smartphone Film Festival (DSFF), we’re inviting you to make a short film about how you and your family can do your bit for the environment, and we’ll show a selection on screen. Send them to schools@irishfilm.ie!

DSFF have put together some great ‘Steps to Filmmaking On Your Phone’ tips here to help you get started. Watch their video explainer here!

Screening as part of the IFI Family Festival 2021, August 27th to 29th.
