Since 2003, Zoom Family Film Festival has been one of our favorite weekends of the year at the Wex. We're sorry we can't welcome families to the center for the 2020 edition, but we're happy you're all staying safe and we have lots of stuff to share below to help you have a fun fest wherever you're watching.
Although Zoom officially kicks off Saturday, you can get a head start on your weekend watch plan with this kit of things to do on top of streaming movies.
Ready for some Zoom prep? Let's go!
(Pssst... check out the top of this handout for a hint of what's coming for Zoom fans.)
PJs, blankets, pancakes, comics—we want to make every day a Zoom day! A printable PDF of this list and other handouts are available at the bottom of the page.
Zoom co-captain Jean Pitman has an easy craft idea to show you: creating a paper ornament for the holidays in just a few steps. Make it unique to you by drawing on the paper first, using strips of different color or metallic papers, or using cut-up magazines or gift wrap.
Ernest & Celestine is one of the movies you can watch for free with a library card. Thanks, Columbus Metropolitan Library!
Choose your tool—crayons, colored pencils, watercolor, an iPad app—to add some color to the images inspired by this year's films.
A printable PDF of the complete guide is available at the bottom of the page.
If you love Zoom, share it with others. This handout has ideas and resources for getting your parents or caretakers involved over the weekend and beyond.

Our partners at the Columbus Metropolitan Library have put together lists of reading suggestions just for you, tied to this year's movies. Books are available for pickup at select CML locations.
