KidsBestFest 2021: Virtual Edition

KidsBestFest is a movie festival for kids and their adults with free admission held during the winter school break. Traditionally shown on the big screen at the Academy of Music Theatre, this year’s KidsBestFest will be a virtual broadcast on the internet. You will be able to watch all of the films from the comfort of your own space and on the screen of your choice. KidsBestFest, a part of the Four Sundays in February winter arts series, is presented by the Northampton Arts Council. We kick off the free movie festival on Monday February 15th with Woolworld (2020) and other selected shorts by Joanna Polak, followed on Tuesday Feb 16 with “The Arctic Camels.” On Wednesday Feb 17 we will show Opertura shorts including Fearless Woman, The Problem with Link Think, and The Jane Bone Adventures. Thursday Feb 18 the feature presentation is “My Name is Pedro,” with the festival wrapping up on Friday Feb 19 with “Learning to Skateboard in a Warzone (if you’re a girl).”
