PHOENIX FILM FESTIVAL TO HOST KIDS’ DAY SATURDAY, APRIL 6
PHOENIX (March 20, 2019) – The Phoenix Film Festival has announced the family-friendly, Kids’ Day to take place on Saturday, April 6. Kids’ Day is a great way for kids of all ages to come out and experience the festival. Attendees can select from a series of hands-on activity stations focusing on different aspects of film production and geared to various age and ability levels. Stations are age-appropriate and run the full gamut of the filmmaking process…and best yet, it’s FREE! Some of the fun activities include:
- Test out your acting chops against a green screen presented by Arizona State University
- Learn techniques of stop motion animation
- Create your own soundtrack with instruments from the Musical Instrument Museum
- Create your own festival poster
- At the conclusion of the activities, guests are invited to a $5 family-friendly screening of DisneyNature’s “Penguins” (Showing at 1:05 pm)
Disneynature’s all-new feature film “Penguins” is a coming-of-age story about an Adélie penguin named Steve who joins millions of fellow males in the icy Antarctic spring on a quest to build a suitable nest, find a life partner and start a family. None of it comes easily for him, especially considering he’s targeted by everything from killer whales to leopard seals, who unapologetically threaten his happily ever after. From the filmmaking team behind “Bears” and “Chimpanzee,” Disneynature’s “Penguins” opens in theaters nationwide in time for Earth Day 2019.
The 19th Annual Phoenix Film Festival, occurring this year from its opening night on April 4th to its conclusion on April 14th, is rapidly approaching. Continually breaking attendance records since its inception, last years’ festival saw over 28,000 attendees and there are hopes to pull in even more film enthusiasts this year. The week-long Festival will be held once again at Harkins Scottsdale 101 Theaters located at 7000 E. Mayo Blvd. Phoenix, AZ 85054.
