Providence Children’s Film Festival: A Decade of Wonder

A Decade of Wonder

Age 8+

PCFF is proud to be celebrating our tenth anniversary by looking into our past. So many wonderful types of films from so many places  have been invited throughout the years. We put together a reel that is a little like a walk down memory lane. Unless you have attended all nine previous festivals there WILL be something new to see! Here are some hints to what’s on this reel. It includes: a janitor that takes a crash course in learning basketball; two films inspired by They Might Be Giants songs; and an Oscar winning story about a bear who breaks out of a cruel circus act.

The Newport Art Museum is pleased to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the Providence Children’s Film Festival (PCFF), and the 5th year of our partnership, by becoming an official Film Festival screening location! PCFF presents the best of independent and international children’s cinema to inspire, delight, educate and connect a diverse community of children and families from Rhode Island and throughout New England. The Museum shares PCFF’s belief in the power of film to expand minds and open hearts to the world around us. We are thrilled to partner with PCFF to bring these important films to our community.
