Providence Children’s Film Festival

tales of the night (Now through February 21st) The Providence Children’s Film Festival was founded in 2009 to bring children’s films, animation, and documentaries to New England, and to present them as shared theatrical experiences for the community. Programming includes live action, animation and documentaries, shorts and features, and films made by RI youth, including the films made in our festival workshops. The festival committee looks especially for films with content that speaks positively to children and families of diverse ages, backgrounds and ethnicities.

During each festival there are opportunities for children and youth to learn about different filmmaking techniques through our educational workshops, led by experienced animators and filmmakers.

Many countries are represented including the latest (pictured here) from director Michel Ocelot, Tales of the Night (Les Contes de la Nuit). In French with English subtitles “The ‘tales’ are six fascinating and exotic fables woven together, each unfolding in a unique locale, from Tibet, to medieval Europe, an Aztec kingdom, the African plains, and even the Land of the Dead.” Click here for a complete list of films; the images from the films are quite promising.

PCFF will run from February 16th through February 21st. Movies will show at Metcalf Auditorium, the RISD Auditorium, and the Cable Car Cinema. Opening night is Thursday, February 16th at Metcalf: reception at 6pm followed by screening of Sandman and the Lost Sand of Dreams at 7pm.
