Written by Alex Gibson on . Posted in Uncategorized

This past weekend, the Philadelphia Film Society, in partnership with the New York International Children’s Film Festival, presented the Philadelphia International Children’s Film Festival (June 6-8).  Our little film-goers enjoyed healthy snacks from the Whole Foods Pop-Up Concessions Stand, engaging activities from Parent to Child Therapy Associates and the 10 Day Film Challenge, and of course renowned international children’s films.

On Saturday, our mini-patrons saw short and feature length films and got a lesson in film animation from our friends at the 10 Day Film Challenge.   On Sunday, our screens cam alive with films like Minuscule: Valley of Lost and Patema Inverted, while kids drew their own stories with Betsy from  Parent to Child Therapy Associates.  The Festival wrapped up with a screening of the 10 Day Film Challenge Championships with students from near and far walking the red carpet to attend.
