JACK & THE CUCKOO CLOCK HEART - SEPT 21, 11:00am @ VILLAGE EAST
DVDs FOR THE FIRST 30 FAMILIES! In this 2014 Festival favorite, Jack is born on a day so cold that his heart freezes. In its place he is given a mechanical wind-up heart, which comes with some very peculiar rules â�� the gravest of which is that he is forbidden from falling in love. Yet when a chance encounter with an equally unusual girl sends him on a journey from his native Edinburgh to Andalusia, Jack decides to challenge the rules that govern his very existence.
SUBMIT TO THE FESTIVAL - FEB 27 THROUGH MAR 22, 2015
Submissions are now open for the 2015 Festival! We are looking for creative, original, non-formulaic short and feature films that will support our mission to create a more dynamic film culture for kids. We often program films that are not created with a young audience in mind, but are received passionately and enthusiastically by our attendees nonetheless.
KIDS MAKE MOVIES! Classes take place during public school breaks and are offered in a variety of animation and live action filmmaking techniques for ages 6 to 16. Students will conceive, storyboard, write, shoot, draw, model, create sets, and perform on camera to create a completed short film. Previous workshops have included Create-a-Cartoon, Multimedia Storytelling, Moviemaking Master Class, Rotoscope Animation, Claymation and more!
