About Louisville Children’s Film Festival

Our mission at Louisville Children’s Film Festival is to support the educational development of children in Louisville, inspiring an openness and curiosity about the world through the showing of high-quality, diverse films. The films chosen by Louisville Children’s Film Festival are selected because they speak to children, parents, and families across age ranges and cultures. The next Louisville Children’s Film Festival is scheduled for February 2020 and will explore family life across cultures and in various forms. We hope you’ll join us as the lights go down and the screen comes to life.

Film Criteria

The LCFF film selection committee seeks films with content that speaks positively to children, youth, and families of diverse ages, backgrounds, and ethnicities. The Festival presents films that are entertaining and/or challenging to young minds with serious, true-to-life topics and narratives.

Film topics span the entire range of emotions. LCFF includes foreign films with subtitles, documentaries, animation and even experimental films that might widen the perspectives of those who attend. Through the selected films we hope to demonstrate the artistry and craft of filmmaking and to provoke discussions about the stories.

Children have been an important part of LCFF from the get-go. Students from Kammerer Middle, Chenoweth and Hawthorne Elementary Schools have created videos for the festival. Other kids have participated in the review and selection of festival films.
