In continuation of my series on past family films from the Minneapolis/St.Paul International Film Festival, I am taking a look at a few films that showed in 2014. The nice thing about catching these films later is that they are all in English now. No reading out loud required. You can see more options in my 2015 List Here. If these films inspire you to go to the film festival, you can find all this year’s Childish Film trailers here.
This weekend is the start of the 2016 Minneapolis/St.Paul International Film Festival. You can view trailers of the upcoming Childish Film options here. I thought a fun way to gear up for the upcoming festival is to have a home viewing festival of films from past years. Tickets are $13.00 per person, so it can’t hurt to see how your kids react to these films before taking them to the theatre to participate in the festival. Here is a list of some of the family films from 2015 and where to find them.
The line up has been announced for The 2016 Minneapolis St. Paul International Film Festival. I’ve been busy exploring the films coming out and finding the film trailers to share. I’ve also been reviewing films from past years. Several of them are now available either from Netflix or Hennepin County Library. If you are on the fence whether your child is ready for the film festival, you could view some of the past films together at home and see how they enjoy them. I’ll have some lists coming up in the next few days.
Another new family-friendly feature is the Youth Juries. If your child is between the ages 11-14, they can apply to judge the six international feature films in the Childish Films series. I’ve included the film trailers for all six below. If you have older teens, between ages 15-18, they can apply to judge Youth Films made by their peers from the Twin Cities and around the world. Deadline to apply is this coming Wednesday, March 16th. More info and application at MSPFF Youth Juries.
Here are the trailers for the films that are included in the Childish Films series. Note none of these films are in English this year, since whispering subtitles through an entire film gets tiring, you may want to consider these outings for competent readers. You can find the films and buy tickets HERE. Read More
