Children's Film Festival

As all parents know, their kids are wont to watch The Little Mermaid or Pixar’s Up over and over and over again. In the car, in the kitchen, on the portable DVD player you take on the airplane to keep them entertained. Which can drive you crazy. So the fifth Children’s Film Festival arrives as a welcome chance to not only introduce your spawn to new movies, but also to expose them to live theater and music. This year’s festival begins with Lelavision Physical Music, a Vashon Island duo who’ll teach some basic science concepts via dance, comedy, and song. Other highlights will include a pancake breakfast (9:30 a.m. Sat. at nearby Central Lutheran Church), packages of animated and international shorts, François Truffaut’s 1976 Small Change, filmmaking workshops, and special group screenings for schools.
