OHIO PREMIERE

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.

There’s something for everyone in this kaleidoscopic collection of animated films selected from the best pieces in the 2009 New York International Children’s Film Festival.

The musical and narrative shorts come from all around the world and feature a spectacular array of animation styles: traditional, CGI, collage, and stop-motion among them. Among the surprises are a music video by They Might Be Giants and adaptations of the inventive children's books The True Story of the Three Little Pigs (by Jon Scieszka and Lane Smith) and Knuffle Bunny (by Mo Willems).

All works presented in English. Recommended for ages 3 and up. (65 mins., video)
