STL – Children’s Film Festival – July 26th-August 4th.
We were just sent over the official schedule for the first annual St. Louis Children’s Film Festival, and it’s definietly worth checking out if you’re going to be in STL. The Children’s Film Festival is presented by PNC Arts Alive, and is free to both children and adults. They are a great supporter of the arts community, and showed that by making a $2 million investment from The PNC Foundation that is meant to support visual and performing arts groups. With this generous investment, they believe they will be able to increase arts access and engagement in new and innovative ways. These two weekends are just a preview of what’s to come for creative young people in St. Louis.
The festival is geared towards children and young teens (ages 6-16). You’ll be able to attend the classes at some great venues like; the St. Louis Public Library, the Missouri History Museum, Washington University, Ronnies 20 Cine, and the Wildey Theater. In addition to film programs, there will also be filmmaking camps on live action/animation being held at the St. Louis Arts Museum. All film programs are free, except the 3-day animation workshop which has a $75 fee for the cost of supplies. Check out this packed schedule for both weekends of the festival (July 26-28 & August 2-4) HERE.
With everything from filmmaking camps, award winning speakers, and live animation workshops, you’re sure to find something everyone in the family will enjoy. Participation is limited and advance sign-up is required; make sure to call 314-289-4153 to inquire whether any space remains available. GG is all about supporting art, especially for the kids, make sure to check it out and help support their cause.
