Frozen River Film Festival programming is designed to educate the community, and that means the whole community.
Even the free children’s programming at the festival aims to expand viewers’ horizons.
Kids’ films and activities are entertaining and educational, as they expose kids to interesting people and experiences beyond their environments.
When planning kids activities, FRFF children’s coordinator Bernadette Mahfood’s goal is to ensure kids “have fun while stretching their minds and abilities.”
Starting at 10:30 a.m. on Saturday, Jan. 25th in Somsen Auditorium, this year’s activities supply plenty of both fun and learning.
Programming begins with the kids’ film set followed by a live bird program by the National Eagle Center.
Several films are created by kids for kids, and they are sure to be a hit for all ages.
“All of the films are excellent,” says Bernadette. “ ‘The Pencil that Didn’t Know How to Write’ and ‘The Scared is Scared’ are delightful.”
After the films, kids can play on the Winter Challenge Course set up on WSU campus and in the Flume Lab off the SLC Atrium.
Kids can also get busy crafting in Stark Hall with mosaics, sculpture, printmaking, puppet design, and more.
The puppetshow “Insectopia, Here We Come!” will show at 12:30 and 1 :30 p.m. in Stark 106 and teach kids about the importance of a healthy environment.
