The Philadelphia International Children’s Film Festival

Written by Alex Gibson on . Posted in Uncategorized

This past weekend, the PFS Theater at the Roxy opened up its doors for the first ever Philadelphia International Children’s Film Festival. It was a fun filled weekend of films, prizes and giveaways.

On Friday, The Roxy saw its first full house for the Opening Night film Zarafa. Kids coming to see the film took a second on the red carpet outside to snap a picture with their favorite characters.

On Saturday, we had a day of back-to-back films including the acclaimed Wolf ChildrenKirikou, and Welcome to the Space Show.

The Festival finished up on Sunday with films in the morning followed by the Closing Night festivities and film The ZigZag KidChildren at the Closing Night Festivities enjoyed a Stop Motion Animation Workshop, Caricatures, and another chance to snap a picture with their favorite characters.

Here are a few snapshots from the event:
