We live in a wildly interconnected and media-saturated world. Every minute on the internet there are 205 million emails sent, 6 million Facebook pages viewed, and 1.3 million YouTube clips downloaded. Studies predict that by 2015, the number of networked devices on the earth will be double the number of people. These staggering figures suggest a tremendous need for media literacy. This is why we created the Boston International Kids Film Festival: to help young people learn to use the media so that it doesn’t use them. We want to empower the next generation to find their own unique voices as they discover the power and potential of visual media.
Thank you to all who submitted films for the 2014 festival! Our panel of judges screened nearly 300 films and have selected a terrific line up for this year’s festival. To see the list and buy tickets, CLICK HERE!
