In association with Northwest Film Forum and Melbourne International Animation Festival

Brooklyn’s favorite film festival for kids bursts into the digital space with nine days of family-friendly shorts, interactive arts workshops, performances, dance parties, and more opportunities for families to get creative together!

We’re continuing the local and international partnerships that make this festival special, year after year. International curators offer six programs of superb, imaginative short films from 28 different countries. The incredible dancers of Pilobolus and MOVE|NYC| share their artistry and invite you to join in from home. Teaching artists from BRIC and BAM Education guide your family through interactive arts activities. We’re partnering with the Colorscapes app to create digital coloring games, as well as offering, digital coloring pages. Plus, we’re adding a well-earned emphasis on wellness with yoga and somatic breathing workshops for both kids and adults.

Learn more about the full lineup of screenings, workshops, and more virtual events—and get ready to be swept up in the magic of BAMkids Film Festival 2021.
