KIDS-FILM | Rochester International Children's Film Fest


Whether you're young or young at heart, the Rochester International Children's Film Festival presents a range of films that are sure to delight all ages. Thirteen shorts showcase kindness, friendship, humor, and other gentle themes appropriate for children and families, or anyone that needs to see a bit of light right about now. Stop motion, 3D and 2D animation are all featured. Titles like 'Ants,' 'Land without Evil,' and 'Sam's Dream' are just a few of the award-winning films that were chosen by veteran film programmer and festival co-founder Ruth Cowing, and vetted by a group of local educators led by co-founder Connie Valk. The festival also features a short film by young Rochester artists, "Learning through Play," created by students enrolled in the School #8 YMCA Afterschool Program and developed in collaboration with Animatus Studio.

Continuing at Monroe County Library System locations through April 27. Free. For the full screening schedule, visit
