KidsBestFest 2018, a Film Festival for kids and their adults

Friday, February 23 at 1:30 pm

A free film festival for kids and their adults during winter school break, part of a February winter arts series presented by the Northampton Arts Council and the Academy of Music Theatre.

Friday February 23The Breadwinner (2017, PG-13, 94min, Animated)

Parvana is an 11-year-old girl growing up under the Taliban in Afghanistan in 2001. When her father is wrongfully arrested, Parvana cuts off her hair and dresses like a boy in order to support her family. Working alongside her friend Shauzia, Parvana discovers a new world of freedom–and danger. With undaunted courage, Parvana draws strength from the fantastical stories she invents, as she embarks on a quest to find her father and reunite her family. Equal parts thrilling and enchanting, The Breadwinner is an inspiring and luminously animated tale about the power of stories to sustain hope and carry us through dark times.

A film by Nora Twomey, from executive producer Angelina Jolie and the creators of the Academy Award®-nominated The Secret of Kells and Song of the Sea, based on Deborah Ellis’ bestselling novel.
