Family friendly films (comedies or dramas) about or featuring children/youth.
MISSION & OBJECTIVE
Cinema St. Louis presents the second annual SLIFF/Kids Children’s Film Festival, held from Aug 1-10, 2014. The films screened at SLIFF/Kids include international and American-independent narrative features (both animated and live action), shorts programs, and a filmmaking camp for youths. Although the programs are pitched to children and young teens ages 6-16, older teens and adults will find the films equally appealing. When appropriate, the recommended minimum age for attendees is provided. The SLIFF/Kids film programs are free to all attendees, both children and adults. No tickets are required for any show.
