The third annual Miami International Children’s Film Festival, presented by the Coral Gables Art Cinema in partnership with the New York International Children’s Film Festival, will take place December 26-31 at the Gables Cinema.
South Florida families will be transported to different countries and experience other cultures through a blend of global “art house” films for children of all ages, along with film workshops, parties and talks with visiting filmmakers.
“The Miami International Children’s Film Festival is back and better than ever. The film festival has become a staple in the community and due to last year’s success we’ve extended the film festival to a week-long celebration of international films,” said Midge Blumberg-Krams, Chairperson of Children and Family Programs.
“We’re creating a way to expose South Florida families to international films that have never been seen and premiering for the first time in Florida. We are creating a love for independent films at a young age and expanding their horizons,” adds Midge Blumberg-Krams.
The Miami International Children’s Film Festival aims to provide its audiences with global, multicultural and outstanding films – most of them area premieres.
Festival highlights include:
· Opening Day reception before screening the Florida Premiere of the French film “Mune” in 3D at 2:00 p.m.
· The Florida Premiere of the South Korean film “Satellite Girl and Milk Cow” followed by a Stop Motion Animation workshop.
· The Florida Premiere of the French film “The King and the Mockingbird,” and Norwegian film “Ballet Boys,” on the same day.
· Showcase of films from around the world, including France, Paraguay, Finland, Norway, U.S. and more.
· Films include animation and live-action, as well as features and shorts.
· Hands-on animation workshops for kids and teens in partnership with Coral Gables Museum.
Groups that will be collaborating with the Miami International Children’s Film Festival include the Coral Gables Museum, the Florida Film Institute and Miami-Dade Public Schools. A full festival film schedule and ticket pricing guide is available at: www.gablescinema.com/
