Ever feel like all the coolest stuff always happens in the city? Not so! The Pelham Picture House is sponsoring the second annual Westchester International Children’s Film Festival this weekend, and the line-up is intriguing. Think: Movies for 3-year-olds. Yep. Tweens? Def. Teens. For sure.
It will kick off on Friday, Sept. 2 (today!), with the award-winning April and the Extraordinary World, a French mystery/sci-fi animated film about a teen, accompanied by a talking cat, searching for her missing parents in 1941 Paris (7pm on Friday). Kid Flix offers a selection of highly-rated short films for the 3- to 7-year-old set (with show times on each day of the festival). Then there’s a John Hughes celebration of films at 9pm each night for grown-ups: screenings of The Breakfast Club, Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, 16 Candles and Pretty in Pink. Check out the full schedule — and sample some arts-based classes for kids — at the WICFF site.
