Zoom School Screenings: International Shorts
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.
This captivating program of short films, best for students in grades 3–8, comes from the 2013 Children’s Film Festival Seattle, you’ll encounter children determined to live life to the fullest despite obstacles that sometimes seem daunting. Whether it’s the story of a Back to the Future–obsessed girl who tries to make a functioning hoverboard or that of a young Jewish boy determined to become a champion break dancer, you’ll be amazed these characters’ ingenuity, strength, and sense of adventure. With films from the US Navajo community, Australia, Brazil, Colombia, and Iceland. Educational resources are provided.
