MISSION & OBJECTIVE
KIDS FIRST! Film Festival offers a showcase for outstanding films made for and by children ages 2 through 18. Screenplays are evaluated year round and those that are endorsed receive full coverage.

ABOUT THE FESTIVAL
KIDS FIRST! Film Festival, celebrating its 14th year in 2013, is hosted locally by established film festivals, children's museums, film societies, and other community organizations.

Screenplays are not part of our film festival. They are considered under the umbrella of our endorsement program. Every screenplay receives full coverage by our qualified judging staff.

Endorsed screenplays are considered for our Best of Fest Awards, are listed with reviews on our website and receive the KIDS FIRST! approved logo.

Screenplay submissions are accepted year-round.
