Rochester International Children’s Film Festival

15th Anniversary Year – BEST OF FEST!


Friends! During this unprecedented time, we’d like to offer a selection of some of the very best children’s shorts from around the world — thoughtfully curated to reflect gentle social themes (diversity, kindness, sharing, etc.), as well as to celebrate artistry, music and other wonderful topics! Starting April 13* for four weeks, we will offer one short film a day (M-Sat.), along with media and literacy suggestions including vocabulary, discussion questions, books, songs, movement, and art activities. In other words, a fun and stimulating way to spend quality learning and art time with your children. Just click the link above every morning starting at 7 am to watch that day’s film and receive follow-up suggestions. Have fun, and let us know what you think! xx www.kidsfestroc.org
