"We loved the Providence Children's Film Festival! This fabulously fun event is another reason why Providence is such a great place for families. This festival designed for kids of all ages, celebrates film as an art form — films designed to engage, enchant, and mesmerize audiences—not merely a vehicle to spawn commercial toys. The festival provides children and their parents an opportunity to see films often not available through mainstream channels. The films, carefully chosen for this festival by the organizers offered something for kids of every age, including animated shorts and feature length films, films with live actors, fictional stories, documentaries, films made by children and movies by and about other cultures and traditions. In addition to watching movies kids talked about film and learned how to make them in sold out workshops at RISD. The whole weekend was buzzing with happy kids and parents. Looking forward to next year's festival already!"

"A tower of miniature cupcakes, flutes of sparkling apple cider, a visit from the mayor and — of course — bags upon bags of fresh, buttery popcorn. After almost a year of planning and with hundreds of kids squirming in their seats, the first annual Providence Children’s Film Festival officially kicked off Friday night at Providence’s Cable Car Cinema."
