Love film? Looking for a free family-friendly event? Newport Art Museum is serving up something to fulfill your needs this month.
The Newport Art Museum announced today that they are “pleased to partner with the Providence Children’s Film Festival (PCFF) to bring inspiring, engaging, and thought-provoking films for all ages to our community”.
Hundreds of films are submitted to the festival for consideration from all over the world each year, and PCFF is bringing a selection of 2020 Festival contenders to the Museum looking for input.
On Thursday, November 7 at 6:00pm, families are invited to a lively evening of watching and reviewing films together. Post-film discussions tease out the successful (and unsuccessful) film elements and are led by Eric Bilodeau, Artistic Director of PCFF. Films are suitable for families, adults, and children ages 5 on up. Parents must accompany children.
PCFF presents the best of independent and international children’s cinema to inspire, delight, educate, and connect a diverse community of children and families from Rhode Island and throughout New England. Visit www.providencechildrensfilmfestival.org for more information.
The event is free, but registration is requested at newportartmuseum.org.
