The Gordon School will host its fourth annual Providence Children’s Film Festival preview on January 11th. All ages are welcome to enjoy the 75-minute presentation of international award-winning short films from the 2018 festival, as well as some sneak peeks into films just invited to the 2019 festival in February.
Seating will be available, but children will also be welcome to spread out on the hardwood floor of the Wales Theater.
This preview is free and open to the public, and is part of three days of family-friendly events at Gordon, including a presentation from Dr. Catherine Steiner-Adair on families and childhood in the digital age on January 10th and an early childhood Come Play! open house on January 12th.

About Gordon School
The Gordon School, in East Providence, Rhode Island, was founded in 1910 as the state’s only non-public coeducational school. Since then, the school has evolved into a progressive institution that offers students academic experiences that have applications far beyond the classroom. With a practical hands-on, real-world instructional approach, each student comes to truly appreciate the value of multiple perspectives. Learning takes place among a diverse population of students and teachers who reflect the many cultures within Rhode Island’s community. Educating children from nursery school through eighth grade, Gordon’s goal is to graduate intellectual leaders and joyful learners who understand empathy, and young people who will make a positive impact on the world.
