Summer at Wilkes Presents Kid's Film Fest

Contact: Vicki Mayk

Wilkes University will host the award-winning KIDS FIRST! film festival on select Sundays this summer. A series of age appropriate movies will be shown at 3 p.m. on June 15, July 20 and Aug. 17 in Stark Learning Center, room 101. The Sunday film events are free and each lasts no more than 90 minutes. 

KIDS FIRST! is a project of the Coalition for Quality Children’s Media. All of the films presented are educational and free of gratuitous violence; race, gender, or religious bias; and condescension towards children. 

There are three main themes:
 
Of Land and Sea, suitable for ages four and above

70 minutes total
 
Never Give Up, suitable for ages eight and above
