Event description

Description

Join us for lively conversation and a first look at films under consideration for the 2018 Providence Children's Film Festival!

The PCFF film selection jury seeks films with content that speak positively to children, teens and families of diverse ages, backgrounds and ethnicities. We seek films that are entertaining and/or challenging to young minds with serious, true-to-life topics and narratives. Topics can span the entire range of emotions. A film need not have a “story-book” ending to find a place in our festival. PCFF welcomes foreign films with subtitles, documentaries, animation and even experimental films that might widen the perspectives of those who attend. Through the selected films we hope to: demonstrate the artistry and craft of filmmaking, provoke discussions about the stories and topics, and to make connections with people and cultures near and far.

The PCFF film selection jury is comprised of adults, children (ages 5 and up) as well as families who work as a group. At PCFF, youth have a voice from beginning to end in the selection of films. At most children’s film festivals youth only serve on award juries. But PCFF’s film selection jury gives children and teens a unique opportunity and responsibility: working alongside an adult committee to select the final Festival program from among hundreds of films that are submitted each year for consideration.

Young Jurors must be accompanied by an adult.
