belmont world film's annual family festival photoTravel the world with your children during Martin Luther King weekend and beyond with some of the most exciting films from around the world for children age 3-12, many based on children's books, that you won't see anywhere else, and workshops (including modeling Gromit & Shaun the Sheep).

Belmont World Film’s Family Festival is a must-attend event for families with children ages 3-12, offering some of the world’s most significant films for children that provide a window into the lives of children around the world, as well as filmmaking workshops that will enrich your children’s lives.

Since many films are based on international children’s books and feature subtitles, it helps children develop a love of books and reading, not to mention helping to increase reading fluency.
This year’s festival features 15 exciting film programs and 5 workshops.

Some films even feature filmmaker Q&As on Zoom!

Most film screenings and workshops will be available virtually, with three films and one workshop taking place in person.

For in-person film screenings Covid protocols will be observed, including proof of vaccination or a negative Covid test 48 hours prior to attending screenings, masking, and social distancing.

LAURA'S STAR is the only film that is only available in person; it will screen on Sunday, January 16, at 1 PM at the brand new Majestic 7 Cinema, located at 81 Arsenal Yards in Watertown, which features both well-spaced and super comfortable seats. The audience is limited to 50 people. Proof of vaccination for adults and children age 12 and over or a negative Covid test result within 48 hours prior to the screening, masks, and social distancing will be required at the screening.
