The 6th Annual Los Angeles International Children’s Film Festival

Nov 11, 2010 by Lisa Newton

Los Angeles hosts many film festivals.

Ranging from the Los Angeles Film Festival to the current ongoing American Film Institute (AFI) Film Festival, there are many more to choose from–including the Silver Lake Film Festival, The American Black Film Festival, Outfest – the LA Gay and Lesbian Film Festival, and the Jules Verne Adventure Film Festival.

To smaller ones including Dances With Films or the Valley Film Festival.

Being the birthplace of the Motion Picture Arts & Sciences, Los Angeles is the birthplace of Film and Television.

For the most part, Film Festival’s are very serious events. As far as child friendly events; well they’re not, because they’re not supposed to be.

Perhaps when your children are older, they’ll be able to appreciate Film Festivals, but very few 7 year-olds will likely get it.

Unless, of course, it’s the 6th Annual Los Angeles International Children’s Film Festival.

Featuring short films from around the world – animation, live action and documentary – they’re all made for children and teens.

This year’s free event is being held at the Martin Luther King Jr. Theater in Santa Monica, adjacent to Santa Monica’s Main City Library, at 601 Santa Monica Boulevard. It starts this coming Saturday:
