The Providence Children’s Film Festival was founded in 2009 to bring high quality, independent and international children’s film, animation, and documentaries to the Rhode Island region as a means of creating shared theatrical experiences for the community. Chances are you will want to see more than one film at the film festival.
so take advantage of the Film Fanatic Family Package – $45 for 10.
There will be films suitable for children of all ages, with useful guidance for content and age appropriateness in the program notes and on the PCFF website. Many of the screenings will have a live introduction, with brief comments about the films and their themes, and for the youngest viewers, questions to guide and enrich their viewing experience.
Kidoinfo is proud to sponsor Providence Children’s Film Festival again this year. We love supporting events such as this that bring families together to learn about other worlds and art forms, to share ideas and to make connections in real life. Save the date and plan ahead! Leading up to the festival read Kidoinfo for highlights of films, workshops and special events.
During the festival, my boys will be back again as “press kids” doing live coverage for their website, flickflackmovietalk.com–their hobby gone wild. When not watching films or attending workshops they will be interviewing the audience, staff and directors with their flip cameras. If you or your kids have an opinion about films, they will want to talk to you!
