It’s not often that our children have access to so many quality films from around the globe—shorts, features, animation, live action, and documentaries—with an emphasis on the craft of film and storytelling and not superfluous merchandise or action figures. Now that the 2013 Providence Children’s Film Festival (and school vacation) has begun I’m taking some time off from Kidoinfo to work the festival and watch movies with my boys. Hope to see you at the movies!
Deepen the experience of the Providence Children’s Film Festival! Film Talks will provide additional education about challenging topics, access to film writers, directors and program staff, and the opportunity to engage in thought-provoking dialogue.
