July 18: Final weekend of KIDS FIRST! Film Festival at UH

Hawaii Independent Staff

The KIDS FIRST! Film Festival finishes its final Sunday on July 18 from 3:00 p.m. to 7:45 p.m. at the University of Hawaii Manoa’s Art Building Auditorium. The award-winning festival returns this year with four summer Sundays of free family films.

KIDS FIRST!, a project of the Coalition for Quality Children’s Media, is the largest traveling children’s film festival in the world.

Curated locally by UH Manoa’s Outreach College, KIDS FIRST! films are free of gratuitous violence; race, gender, or religious bias; inappropriate content; and condescension towards children.

Age-appropriate groupings of films entertain through a balance of animation and live action, plus varied themes from different cultures.
