About this event

Monadnock International Film Festival is proud to present - FREE FILM SHORTS for ages 7+ in partnership with the New York International Children's Film Festival. Stop motion equals nonstop action in Wild Lea, as a feral Colombian cat goes from lonely to loved, but can she learn to settle down with her new makeshift family? And if kooky tales are what you’re craving, you’ll flip your lid over the hilariously absurd split personalities of Matilda and the Spare Head. In the doc Dear Future Me, 6th graders wrote letters to their future selves; fast-forward to 2020 when the now 12th graders re-read them with alternately surprising, bittersweet, and hilarious results. Join us on Sunday, September 25th, 11:00 AM - NOON, for FREE, family-friendly entertainment. No cost but you must register here.
