About Us:

The Providence Children's Film Festival was founded in 2009 to bring high quality, independent and international children's films, animation, and documentaries to Rhode Island, and to present them as shared theatrical experiences for the community.

Films are selected through several means: Award winners and favorites at major children's film festivals around the world, through an open call for submissions, and through recommendations and submissions by RI filmmakers and ducators.Programming includes live action, animation and documentaries, shorts and features, and films made by RI youth, including the films made in our festival workshops.  The festival committee looks especially for films with content that speaks positively to children and families of diverse ages, backgrounds and ethnicities.Parents are given guidance to content and age appropriateness in the program notes.

Educational opportunities are vital to our mission, and during each festival there are opportunities for children and youth to learn about different filmmaking techniques through our workshops, which are led by experienced animators and filmmakers.
