The 15th annual Los Angeles International Children’s Film Festival happens in April-May 2020. We're showcasing new, imaginative, and inventive short films from animators and filmmakers of any age that speak to our young audience.
After opening with films all day April 10-12 at WonderCon at the Anaheim Convention Center, we continue with screenings in April and May at a favorite venue in Santa Monica. (Details announced Feb. 3)
Overall, presenting around 100 short films from around the world—animation, live action, and documentary films—organized for different age groups. Select filmmakers and actors are present for Q&A sessions after each screening.
Admission is free for everyone to all screenings in Santa Monica; free screenings with WonderCon admission at WonderCon.
The festival has a history of showcasing talent and moving careers forward, with more than 70 of our animators and filmmakers going on to work for major studios, and more than 30 becoming part of Oscar-winning teams. We are very proud of our alumni!
