Maryland International Kids Filmfest February 3, 2018.


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.




ecole Estienne

Sève Films is a production company founded by Luce Grosjean in 2014.

Its purpose is to offer young talents the opportunity to have their films produced and distributed.

It also allows numerous films from animation schools to find an audience, thanks to a diffusion in different festivals everywhere in France and abroad.

Sève films is working in close collaboration with five different animation film schools: ArtFx, L’École Estienne, MOPA, GOBELINS and Isart Digital. We also are working with talented Production Companies as Ikki Films or Vagabundo Films.

The Film Festival

Join us February 3, 2018, from 10am to 6pm at the Delaplaine Visual Arts Center.

The Maryland International Kids FilmFest–MIKFF 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 Delaplaine Visual Arts Education Center. 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 in the early years. That portion of the F3’s programming was so popular that the festival organizers felt an entire festival 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, international, challenging, and, most importantly, ENTERTAINING movie programming…in the form of short films as well as theoccasional feature length films…to the state. And we can pretty much guarantee that you’ll not see any film with a fast-food restaurant tie-in product. The MIKFF also includes some workshops related to animation to give kids some hands on experience making their own form of animation, either video or in a historical construct. The aim is to show that creativity and moving pictures can be a part of every child’s life and is within everyone’s ability.
