Concluding 2016, NFMLA invites families to enjoy three fun-filled screening programs dedicated to well crafted family friendly content that will appeal to both children and adults. Kicking off the evening we have a series of animated films that give life to dust bunnies and animals, share life lessons about trust, hope and forgiveness, topped with an abundance of silly antics.
The second program invites established and seasoned filmmakers to create positive and engaging stories specifically for kids and young audiences. Films that are led by endearing characters in situations and how they emerge from these struggles with support from their friends, teachers and parents.
The third program includes inventive stories about family bonds, pint-sized cowboys and Indians, a testy king on his birthday and an adventure set in the future with a female hero who rally’s her friends to save the world.
Closing the evening, our diversity initiative, NFMLA InFocus presents a collection of powerful stories from the creative cinematic community of the Middle East. A young boy’s understanding of death, the effects of war on a lonely soldier, and the odd coupling of an Indian and Pakistani that work long days together are just a few of the films shown. Filmmakers and talent will be in attendance and participating in the audience Q&A led by Danny DeLillo.
Tickets for individual programs are only $5 advance purchase / $7 at the door for single programs and $15 for all-access VIP tickets to all three programs with complimentary beverages.
