Children’s Independent Film Discussion: Join the PCFF Film Jury Night
Monday, November 16, 2015
6 pm - 8 pm
Cranston Public Library
Presenter: Eric Bilodeau, Director of Programming, Providence Children’s Film Festival
Join the Providence Children’s Film Festival for this year’s third film jury roundup. In this unique real-world workshop experience, librarians will learn about children’s independent films by participating as an actual juror for the 2016 PCFF. Librarians will hone their film discussion skills with members of the public by sharing critical comments after each short film (kids go first). You will be surprised to see what is “obviously good” to some reviewers is “downright disagreeable” to others…BUT be ready to explain. Great opportunity to think about new ideas for programming events that increase access to thoughtful films and exercise critical thinking skills and in a fun way. Popcorn for all.
Intended audience: Children and Teen Librarians, School Librarians
