Providence Children’s Film Festival 2017
Providence Children’s Film Festival will be screening 14 feature-length and 75 short films from around the world. Includes workshops, free activities and presentations.
More than movies for kids. PCFF brings the community together to watch, learn about, and discuss independent and international cinema. We care about the craft of filmmaking, the stories, the people, the connections, and inspiring a new generation of thinkers and doers.
The Providence Children’s Film Festival 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. The 8th annual Providence Children’s Film Festival takes place February 17-26, 2017 at main venues within walking distance of downtown Providence and at satellite venues across Rhode Island—bringing a world of film to even more Rhode Island youth and families—with over ten days of screenings, filmmaking workshops, and free activities, along with post-film presentations that help deepen the film-watching experience.
Some of the places Festival attendees will travel to through film include the Philippines (Blanka), Korea (The World of Us) and Iran (Sonita). This year’s film lineup also includes a series of mini documentaries that explore a range of topics, such as summer camp for gender diverse kids (Rainbow Day Camp); two teen sisters conjoined on the head (Chenelva & Sheneeva); and Norwegian skateboarders using a beach to build ramps (Northbound).

New for this year is a Film Fanatic Pass(10 films for $75.00), providing attendees flexibility and excellent value. School and group discounts are also available.
