Family Film Fest
This program is for the whole family.
Registration is not required. Show up anytime as these are mini-movies.
Come and watch movies that have been created for the Rochester International Children's Film Festival. We are one of the many libraries in Monroe County that are presenting the mini movies.
The Children's Film Festival was created because they wanted to provide an accessible forum for non-violent, artistic films and other media as part of literacy education for children, their families and caregivers.
The Rochester International Children’s Film Festival — held annually in April during the Month of the Young Child — is an innovative collaboration of community organizations offering high-quality and non-violent films to children and families. International film selections are made by veteran film programmer Ruth Cowing, and are approved by local educators and early childhood specialists. In addition, the festival provides training for educators on the effects of media and on the importance of supporting parents to make appropriate media choices for children. Since 1984, the Federal Communication Commission no longer regulates children’s television. Now our media exposes children to many kinds of violence as glamorous, exciting and fun. Educators note the violence children experience on TV, in video games and other media often inspires aggressive behavior. Our goal is to create awareness of this issue and help parents and caregivers choose entertainment appropriate for young children.
