Kids First! Film Festival

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow)-The KIDS FIRST! FIlm Festival,  a project of the Coalition for Quality Children's Media, partners each year with over 150 venues nationwide, reaching an audience of more than one million people, making it the largest kids' film festival in the world.  Curated locally by UH Manoa's Outreach College, KIDS FIRST! films are free of gratuitous violence; race, gender, or religious bias; inappropriate content; and condescension towards children. Age-appropriate groupings of films entertain through a balance of animation and live action, plus varied themes from different cultures. To add to the festivities, door prizes are awarded at all screenings. Parents, grandparents, friends and neighborhood kids -- everyone can enjoy the Festival because it's juried by kids, parents, teachers, and child advocates nationwide to qualify for the Festival.
