Release your inner critic! Help us select films for the 2016 Providence Children’s Film Festival. Join PCFF, the Cranston Public Library and Media Smart Libraries for this year’s third film jury roundup. Learn about basic film elements and how to use the PCFF rating system. Young, old and everyone in between is invited to share their critical comments after each short film (kids go first). You will be surprised to see what is “obviously good” to some reviewers is “downright disagreeable” to others…BUT be ready to explain. PCFF Director of Programming Eric Bilodeau moderates this lively and always enjoyable event.
This workshop is part of the Media Smart Libraries program which was made possible in part by the Institute of Museum and Library Services, Grant # LG-07-14-0045-14. Librarians (Children and Teen Librarians, School Librarians) are invited to hone their film discussion skills with members of the public by sharing critical comments after each short film. Great opportunity to think about new ideas for programming events that increase access to thoughtful films and exercise critical thinking skills and in a fun way.
All ages event. Popcorn is included.
