Zoom: Family Film Festival

Zoom continues for its 11th year with a fantastic assortment of acclaimed movies and entertaining events for all ages. One mission of Zoom has been to provide diverse and engrossing stories from around the world to central Ohio families. This year’s lineup is our most international yet with a film from each continent—a Zoom first! In addition to the great films, kids and families can enjoy fun and free activities together on Saturday, December 6, with our morning cereal and pajama party, hands-on crafts, and an ice cream social in the afternoon.

Little mice are taught to be afraid of bears, but when Célestine’s dream of meeting a bear is realized, the shabby Ernest proves to be the best friend an open-minded mouse could hope for. The film’s beautiful, old-fashioned, watercolor style of animation makes Ernest & Célestine stand out in a world of cookie-cutter 3D animations, and so does its charm and poignant story. A favorite with audiences around the world, Ernest & Celestine is the latest film from the creative animators of A Town Called Panic, a hit at the 2009 edition of Zoom. In French with English subtitles. (79 mins., video)
