The Brooklyn Film Festival recently hosted an event called 'kidsfilmfest,' which aimed to "discover, expose, and promote children's filmmakers while drawing worldwide attention to Brooklyn." With everything from documentaries to stop-motion films, the event exposed kids to a wide variety of movies.
kidsfilmfest is a youth-curated film festival that was recently held at the Made in NY Media Center by IFP in Brooklyn. The event featured a dozen short films, each of which was selected by judges between the ages of six and 13. The films chosen for the festival included Reza Golchin’s documentary 'Class,' a stop-motion fantasy film called 'Looney Foodz,' and a Canadian live-action film called 'Sneaky.' The event also included live Q&A sessions with filmmakers and a filmmakers workshop for those interested in learning how to make movies themselves.
