A babysitting monster, a cookie recipe gone wrong, a girl who just wants to be left alone to read in the forest, kids thinking up ways to be kind . . .
This fast-paced, family friendly show features an eclectic variety of short films by and for kids. A Q&A with filmmakers follows the screening. A special appearance by the Oakland Youth Chorus kicks of the event.
After the show, kids can get hands-on with film skills and even take their work home (with a parent's permission and email address):
• Animate! Make your own stop animation films with help from Steve & Kate’s Camp and your own imagination.
• Image yourself! Choose a landscape and experience yourself inside a green-screen world courtesy of Albany's Film & Story Summer Camp.
$5 Adults | $1 Kids Tickets available at the door. MAP
Albany FilmFest is proud to support young filmmakers.
