LACMA's on the hunt for short and feature-length films to include in the Los Angeles International Children’s Film Festival this December. We're looking for new, imaginative, and inventive films that speak to our young and family audience.

The 13th annual Los Angeles International Children's Film Festival returns to the Los Angeles County Museum of Art on December 17, 2017. Presenting nearly 100 films from around the world—full-length and short animation, live action, and documentary films—the festival is organized for different age groups, from toddlers through teenagers. Select filmmakers and actors are present for Q&A sessions after each screening.

    Nice little festival in a great auditorium at LACMA. Not many perks for the filmmakers but then again its a Children's Film Festival with lots of student films. I appreciate being invited and showing our short animation. They do give you plenty of Q&A time after each shorts block. I think it is a good showcase for young filmmakers from the local film schools and universities. I'd recommend submitting your animation or children's themed film.

    We couldn't attend the festival. However, we were delighted to be screened. They were very responsive and helpful on the communication front and sent us a PDF of the programme, which was great.

    It was a small festival but that is okay. My student got to do a Q&A which I think was cool. For some strange reason they cut off the last scene and all the credits from his animation which throw me and nobody clapped. And I think this upset my student so that he was a little rattled and didn't do well during the Q&A.
