9th Annual Providence Children’s Film Festival

The 9th annual Providence Children’s Film Festival takes place February 16-25, 2018 with screenings, filmmaking workshops, and free activities, along with post-film conversations that help deepen the film-watching experience. Audiences of all ages will enjoy over 100 feature-length and short films—including live-action, documentary, and animation—made by filmmakers from around the world. PCFF’s mission is to present the best of independent and international children’s cinema to inspire, delight, educate, and connect a diverse community of children and families from Rhode Island and beyond. Events take place at main venues within walking distance of downtown Providence and at satellite venues across the state. For festival details, visit: providencechildrensfilmfestival.org

There are all kinds of ways to tell a story. Paints, pastels, textiles and even text from a typewriter (your grandparents can tell you what that last one is) are used here. The stories told include a weasel who learns the hard way that if you can’t beat ’em, join ’em. There are Shammies who take care of one another when each catches a cold, and, of course, imaginative lemmings ordering items online to be delivered by drones. These films may animate YOU to tell your own stories!
