Philadelphia International Children’s Film Festival

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 Friday, the PFS Roxy Theater welcomed Brian “Astro” Bradley, star of Opening Night film Earth to Echo.  Astro stuck around to speak tot he audience and snap a few pictures before the kids enjoyed the movie!




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.  


Many thanks to our partners, sponsors, volunteers, and patrons for making this weekend a great success!
