The Boston International Kids Film Festival (BIKFF) is a program of Filmmakers Collaborative, an organization that has been working with independent filmmakers since 1987. The mission of the BIKFF is to inspire kids to use the media to tell their own stories while screening some of the best films that independent filmmaking has to offer. Filmmakers will present full length documentaries, animated shorts, and short films appropriate for young children through high schoolers. The festival will also feature films made by students in FC Academy, an after-school and summer vacation filmmaking program that introduces kids to the latest technology and filmmaking techniques. More than half of the films being screened are student-made, with the producers and directors being 18 years or younger.
Full Festival Passes and Saturday Passes are available online (or by phone or in person at the MCA Box Office) at the advance price until 1 PM on Friday, November 18. Tickets to individual screening blocks are available online until 2 hours prior to the start of that screening block. After those times, tickets and passes are available in person at the MCA Box Office only.
The full list of films to be shown, along with their screening times, can be found on the Boston International Kids Film Festival website, BIKFF.org
