Belmont World Film Family Festival

January 13, 2017 @ 7:00 PM - January 16, 2017 @ 5:00 PM


This January 13th-16th, be sure not to miss the 14th annual Belmont World Film Family Festival! The festival offers nearly four full days of some of the world’s best films for children age 3-12 and their families. Hosted at the Regent Theatre Arlington, Belmont Studio Cinema and Brattle Theatre Cambridge.

Following a showing of Wallace & Gromit: The Curse of the Were-Rabbit, there will be a talk and autograph signing by Merlin Crossingham! Crossinham is the Creative Director of the Wallace and Gromit series at Aardman Animation in the UK. There will also be two model making workshops, to make a Gromit clay model and to make a Shaun the Sheep clay model! Both of these workshops will include learning about the creative process, building a clay model and learning how to animate their character using Aardman’s Animate It! software. Participants will need to bring an iPad (preferred) or iPhone with the Animate It! app (free or $2.99 version) downloaded. Space is limited and tickets are only on sale until December 30th.

The movie Opposite Field will be shown, as well, with special guest speaker Evan Petty. Petty is originally from Newburyport and now is the assistant-coach for the Ugandan Little League team. Find the trailer and more info here!

Shorts are $6, feature films are $9, and festival passes are $45.
