Film Festivals are a great way to expose kids to a wider variety of media than the heavy commercial stuff constantly bombarding them. There are even some film festival featuring works by kids. Kids love to watch what other kids have created. Here is a list of some film festivals. Plan a trip to one of these fun cities around a festival! A fun thing to do is get tickets to the shorts. These are lots of fun as you get to see a bunch of really different short films. I love hearing which one everyone like best and why.(photo from Zafra NYIFF)
