Big Movies For Little Kids Announces Its First Student Film Festival


This is so cool. Big Movies For Little Kids, the wonderful Brooklyn children's film series, is turning the table by giving neighborhood kids a chance to show their own productions as part of their very first Student Film Festival . Read on:
Big Movies for Little Kids, the celebrated classic film series for children, announces its first-ever student film festival. Short films by New York City students are now being accepted for consideration. Selected films will be screened on the BIG screen at the Big Movies for Little Kids season finale on June 6th, 2011 at 4pm, at Cobble Hill Cinemas (265 Court Street, Brooklyn)

Last year, a group of fourth-graders from Packer Collegiate Institute made a short film to screen alongside our Tom & Jerry show. A live-action romp, the film was such a hit with our young audience that we’ve added an entire short film festival to our lineup!

Students 18 years old and younger who attend school in New York City (public, private, home school, we don’t care) are eligible to participate.

Films must be submitted in DVD format by May 1st, 2011. There are no entry fees but there is a limit of one film per student or group. Finalists will be screened and introduced by a well-known film director (TBA) at the June 6th festival. Children attending the festival will select one grand-prize winner, which will be shown at the BigMovies/Rooftop Films Drive-In Outdoor Movie Night on June 17th.
