A hybrid event of both live and virtual screenings, the Boston International Kids Film Festival opens Friday November 19th. BIKFF is a stellar festival for kids, about kids, and many of the films are created by kids. There are 55 well-chosen and highly entertaining films that run the gamut from fun and funny to thought provoking documentary.

From Filmmakers Collaborative, “Filmmakers Collaborative created the Boston International Film FestivalF in 2013 with a goal of showing kids that making a film can be a powerful way to tell a story, express your emotions, state a point of view and ( more importantly) to have fun!
By screening amazing student-made films from around the world while at the same time offering these young filmmakers a look at professionally-made films created just for them, we are enabling the next generation of filmmakers to realize the power and potential of media.
The young filmmakers that participate in FC Academy, our after-school and summer filmmaking program, are given center stage at special blocks throughout the weekend, as we screen the short films that they have created in front of their family and friends.
Combine all that with VIRTUAL hands-on workshops on filmmaking and stop-motion animation meetups and you are in for an event that families of Greater Boston will be enjoying for years to come!
