Bay Area International Film Festival

Hello my name is Tara and I am an animation junkie!

Response: Hello, Tara!

If you are looking for something to do with the kids this weekend in the Bay Area I highly recommend heading over to Alameda and watching a few of the international shorts that have made the cut for the annual Bay Area International Film Festival. 265322834_640

The morning starts at 10 a.m. with a collection of animated and stop-motion shorts for kids of all ages, then a feature film. The afternoons are geared for kids age 6 and older with shorts beginning around 1:30 and the day ending with a feature film. Saturday’s (Jan. 26th) morning feature film will be LOTTE FROM GADGETVILLEHeiki Ernits and Janno Põldma, 81 minutes, Estonia, 2006. The afternoon feature film will be ZARAFA Rémi Bezançon & Jean-Christophe Lie, 78 minutes, France/Belgium, 2012. In French with English subtitles so make sure your little one is up for some reading. A one day pass is $15, or a weekend pass for $20, children ages 3 and younger are free.

I look forward to watching this short about a dinosaur who learns to fly. Or this one about a cute little cloud.
