Freeze Frame International Film Festival for Kids of All Ages March 10 - 17, 2019
8 days of films, workshops and the chance to mingle with world-class filmmakers!!

Freeze Frame, the International Film Festival for Kids Of All Ages was created to provide young people in Manitoba access to quality films and videos from around the world. Freeze Frame selects films and videos that will entertain and challenge children and youth by exploring situations and issues not normally explored in mainstream media. While most countries produce quality movies and television programs for youth, these productions are rarely seen by the general public. Freeze Frame brings these films and videos to Manitoba because they are a window into other cultures and allow us to explore new or unfamiliar storytelling and filmmaking styles. http://www.freezeframeonline.org/
