SATURDAY:Childish Films: New York International Children’s Film Fest Kid Flix Saturday, September 20, 2014; 10:00 a.m. Hennepin County Library – Minneapolis Central, 300 Nicollet Mall, Minneapolis, MN
My kids (2, 4 & 9) helped me preview all the short films being shown by Childish Films on Saturday. They loved them all and I didn’t have a problem with getting any of them to sit still except while I was searching for the next film. Our favorite by far was Animal Beat Box. Show up early to get a good seat and enjoy the music of Duke Otherwise. Doors open at 10 am for seating, snacks, and hands-on activities. Live pre-show performances begin at 10:30 am. Anne’s has written about Childish Films here.
