The Providence Children’s Film Festival (PCFF) brings high quality films for children and youth from around the world to Rhode Island and presents them as shared theatrical experiences for families and the community. The anchor event for the organization is an annual multi-day film festival in February with screenings of feature length and short films (including live-action, animation and documentary), workshops, and Film Talks. PCFF also presents year-round screenings, often in partnership with other organizations throughout the state. PCFF recognizes that film and video are among the most accessible and innovative, but also challenging, media for the communication of stories and ideas, both historical and contemporary, and thus education is as important to its mission as programming. In addition to the film viewing experience, PCFF provides opportunities to learn about the history of the medium and its critical context, as well as the craft of filmmaking, through media literacy programs, hands-on workshops, and filmmaker presentations.
