Film links will be available to watch through Monday, November 9.

The International Children’s Film Festival is an exclusive film experience that showcases award-winning films from around the world designed to stimulate the imagination of parents and children alike. After watching the films at home on Saturday, attendees will be invited to join a Zoom afterparty with some of the film directors! The directors who will attend include Virginia Abramovich and her daughter, Ana, who is the main character in the film (Little Questions, Canada), Leandro Tadashi (Ba, Brazil) and Elena Walf (Bat Time, Germany).

Co-hosted by the Chicago-based International Children’s Media Center, the festival will showcase eleven captivating and culturally rich films from eight different countries, including South Korea, Germany, and Brazil. With the theme "Caring and Sharing," it will feature six Chicago premieres and highlights short films that explore the enduring themes of empathy, understanding, and friendship despite barriers of all kinds. Children and adults alike will resonate with these unique films and their themes that illustrate just how important it is to care for one another.

These world-class children's films will appeal to children ages 5 to 10, but even older kids will find something to spark their imagination in this national mini-festival. Learn more at www.northbrook.info/film-fest. Advance registration is required for all of our virtual programs. You do not need a library card to register. You only need to register once for each program, even if more than one person in your household will be attending the program. Please check your email on the morning of the program for a link.  

This event is cosponsored by the Friends of the Library.
