When it comes to finding or choosing French films or TV shows for kids to watch, the number of programs available on American streaming platforms can be overwhelming. That's why each month, we gather a list of great French content for kids and teens that are available to watch online. While some films or series are pure entertainment, others are designed to share useful educational concepts, and more still may be great for the whole family to enjoy! So, what's on this month?

Lilou

Directed by Rawan Rahim, 2015, 8min., France-Lebanon / Recommended for ages 8+ (no dialogue)

Lilou is sensitive and curious, but also paralyzed by unbearable shyness. She is given a gift that allows her to see the past of the people around her and this will suddenly bring her out of her introversion.
