(10.3) Do you know what makes a good children’s movie? At what age is a child ready for, say, “Old Yeller”? If you answered “never ever,” then you might be of help next Wednesday at the Providence Athenaeum. The Providence Children’s Film Festival (PCFF) is seeking open, analytical minds of all ages to watch and discuss films submitted for festival consideration.
Prepare to give more than a thumbs up or down – we want to know not just what you think of the films but why! Director of Programming Eric Bilodeau promises you a lively evening of 8-10 short films that even he found challenging to score. Grown-ups’ comments are welcome, but kids speak first after every film. (Oh, and did we mention pizza and popcorn will be provided?)
This image was chosen at random from this year’s PCFF animated shorts package and may, or may not, be one of the “challenging” films. Registration for the PCFF Jury Night is required.
Free and open to the public, 6pm to 8:30pm, Wednesday, October 3, Providence Athenaeum, 215 Benefit Street, 401.421.6970, (directions)
