ANDkids

 

We covered four days, thirty-five countries and created countless memories to last us the whole summer long! The 7th annual ANDkids World Film Festival featured an entertaining, educational and diverse line-up of films from around the world for children of all ages.

Our deepest thanks to each of our ANDkid reviewers and readers, greeters, voters (check back for Best of the Fest results!) and the grownups who supported their young volunteer. And, thank you for making ANDkids such a great success. See you July 2016!
