Maryland International Kids Filmfest January 28, 2017.


A selection of films from Sève Films Studio which distributes the best films from film schools in France as well as films from noted professional film studios, has been distributed though today's programming. Each year the MIKFF partners with a film organization in another country to provide a selection of films highlighting that culture. Sève Films has submitted these films and we hope that you enjoy them.

The Film Festival

Join us January 28, 2017, from 10am to 6pm at the Weinberg Center for the Arts.

The Maryland International Kids FilmFest is an outgrowth of the children's programming at the annual Frederick Film Festival -The F3- held each year in June - and a partnership with the Weinberg Center for the Arts. Since the beginning, the F3 has been dedicated to providing not only a unique film-going experience in the region by providing premiere films as well as films not likely to be screened in the area, but also providing children's programming on Saturday mornings. This portion of the F3's programming was so popular that the festival organizers felt an entire weekend of great film should not just be reserved for adults, but be provided for the younger set as well. Often, films and programs aimed at children seem...childish. Not challenging. Safe. And far too often, not entertaining. Especially those constructed to be long commercials in the guise of young people's programming. The Maryland International Kids FilmFest is committed to bring high-quality, challenging, and, most importantly, ENTERTAINING movie the form of short films as well as feature length the state. And we can pretty much guarantee that you'll not see any film with a fast-food restaurant tie-in product. Other film events during the MIKFF will highlight the venue itself. The Weinberg Center for the Arts is an historic building and a jewel valued by the entire state and the festival is proud to have the opportunity to show movies in one of the grandest movie palaces in the area. Take some time to walk around the building while you're here and discover what an extraordinary thing going to the movies once was.
