My family loves the REDCAT International Children’s Film Festival. The selection of shorts is always excellent, the audience’s energy and enthusiasm is infectious and the theater offers an intimate place to immerse yourself in wonderful stories from around the world.
I highly recommend you attend one or more screenings during the festival’s two-weekend run. If the films are anything like the ones I’ve seen in the past, you won’t be disappointed.
To figure out what films are of interest to you and your family, follow the links below. There you’ll find overviews of each program, as well as age recommendations that will help you decide which shorts are appropriate for your children.
