Short films are for ages 10 and younger and total runtime is roughly 1-hour long.
Filmmakers Collaborative created the Boston International Kids Film Festival in 2013 with a goal of showing kids that making a film can be a powerful way to tell a story, express your emotions, state a point of view and (more importantly) to have fun! The BIKFF highlights the talent of independent filmmakers everywhere while inspiring young people to share their own stories with the world. FC Academy provides filmmaking classes — after school, during the summer and throughout school vacation weeks for middle school students who want to flex their creative muscles and learn the art of filmmaking.
