Belmont World Film: 16th Annual Family Festival, 1/18-21

January 18 and 20, Regent Theatre. As always, most of the films are based on children’s books to help reinforce a love of books and reading. Thirteen animated and live action short and feature length film programs from around the world (with simultaneous English translation for subtitled films) during Martin Luther King Day weekend. Highlights include a live version of WBUR’s “Circle Round” podcast for children that features re-imagined folk tales performed by local actors; three films about very determined children with disabilities. We are currently negotiating with Warner Bros. about a virtual reality display from JK Rowling’s Fantastic Beasts & Where to Find Them (Harry Potter).
