Bring the Fest to a Theater Near You!

The Festival’s Best of the Fest touring program brings films to theaters and arts organizations around the country that might not otherwise have access to independent and international film programming for young people. Join us in the movement to create a more dynamic film culture for kids and teens. We currently offer two unique short film programs – Kid Flix 1, for ages 3-7, and Kid Flix 2, for ages 8 to adult. In addition to the film programs, package includes film stills, media, and suggested copy for promotional use, and a digital one-sheet for venue dressing.
