From March 9 through 18, TIFF Bell Lightbox welcomes the next generation of film lovers for the 21st anniversary of TIFF Kids. This year’s program addresses important issues faced by kids such as making new friends, exploring new cultures, and embracing diversity in various forms. TIFF Kids engages young audiences in the art of storytelling, critical thinking and media literacy through Q&As with filmmakers and special guests. Kids also participate in the event itself as festival jurors.
More than just a day at the movies, the TIFF Kids International Film Festival includes a School Programme for elementary school students, with a compelling selection of features and shorts on diverse subjects presented in a variety of genres and styles. Each School Programme selection comes with a unique teacher resource designed to support the TIFF Kids Festival experience and is extended to the classroom by connecting the films to many aspects of the Ontario Curriculum.
