April 26 - May 5, 2013, Aero Theatre
Looking for something fun to do with your kids? Want to share a movie with them but dread walking into a feature-length commercial for action figures/trading cards/Happy Meals? Look no further: Our two-week survey of animated and live-action shorts and films from around the world offers something for everyone ages 3-18 - with enough passion and intelligence to put smiles on parents’ faces as well.
In partnership with New York International Children’s Film Festival (North America’s largest festival for children and teens), the American Cinematheque brings a selection of the most compelling recent films for kids to the West Coast for the first time. Included are beautifully animated features from Japan (A LETTER TO MOMO, WOLF CHILDREN), France (A MONSTER IN PARIS, in 3-D), Canada (THE DAY OF THE CROWS) and the U.S. (MEET THE SMALL POTATOES), a Chinese take on a famed fairy tale (CINDERELLA MOON) and a short film showcase.
ArtKandy.com, the new online gallery from the folks who brought you Every Picture Tells A Story, will donate limited edition fine art prints from the top children's book illustrators - including Maurice Sendak, Mo Willems, Hilary Knight and Garth Williams - to be given away each night.
Series programmed by Gwen Deglise and Grant Moninger. Co-produced by Ashley Drysdale. Program notes by John Hagelston.
