In this children's fantasy created by final year students at Auckland's Media Design School, a motivated (and very cute) kitten named Freda applies for the job as 'familiar' to Zoe, a local witch. Zoe asks Freda to gather an exotic list of ingredients, but the resulting spell isn't what either of them expected. Written and directed by James Cunningham, Kitten Witch joins a gallery of award-winning Media Design School short films. In 2016 it won the People's Choice Award at Show Me Shorts; in 2019 it shared the award for Favourite Live Action Short at a Children's Film Festival in Seattle.
Freda, with your talents you deserve to be a witch, not just a familiar.– Zoe (Anthea Hill) sets about helping Freda become a real witch
