Join us January 15-24, 2021
Belmont World Film’s Family Festival is a must-attend event for families with children ages 3-12, offering some of the world’s most significant films for children that provide a window into the lives of children around the world as well as filmmaking workshops that will entertain and enrich your children’s lives. Since most films are based on international children’s books and feature subtitles, it helps children develop a love of books and helps increase reading fluency.
This year’s festival takes place completely online, enabling audience members to view these wonderful films in the comfort and safety of their own homes. Most film programs are available for viewing throughout the entire US, whereas others are limited together New England or Massachusetts.
Once you start a film, you will have 48 hours to finish it. All but three film programs (Fahim, the Little Chess Prince, Forward and Hungry Bear Tales) are available for streaming for the full 10 days—Friday, January 15 at 10 AM to Sunday, January 24 at 7 PM. The only other timed events are the workshops and the Q&As with filmmakers. Space is limited in the workshops, so make sure you sign up in advance.

Since we are spending more time at home due to Covid-19, we have compiled two lists of our favorite films to entertain and educate. One is geared primarily to adults and the other to children. Both include films we have shown in the past, as well as ones we would have liked to have shown.
You will find films suitable for people of all ages on both lists, so just click on each link below to see trailers and for streaming links!
