LOUISVILLE CHILDREN’S FILM FESTIVAL

The mission of the Louisville Children’s Film Festival (LCFF) is to support the educational development of children in Louisville, inspiring an openness and curiosity about the world through the showing of high-quality, diverse films. The LCFF film selection committee sought films with content that speaks positively to children, youth and families of diverse ages, backgrounds and ethnicities. The Festival presents films that are entertaining and/or challenging to young minds with serious, true-to-life topics and narratives.

LCFF School Field Trips to the Ogle Center offer students the chance to experience thought-provoking film programs during the Festival. Screenings are available for grades K-8 and include pre- and post-discussion guides for teachers.

The films are not just available to public schools, however. Any group or family with children of the recommended ages are also free to make a reservation, also free of charge.

TESOROS (Spanish for “treasures”) is the latest film by director Maria Novaro (DANZON). Refreshingly told from the children’s perspective, it examines topics from finding treasure and exploring new places to social anxiety and fitting in. It is an enchanting window into the heart of a child’s world.

A family moves to a small town on Mexico’s Pacific Coast. At first, they are not excited about the new place or the new school, but siblings Dylan and Andrea join the local school and settle in, making new friends. When Dylan finds a treasure map, he convinces the entire class that Sir Francis Drake’s treasure is under foot and the search is on.

The slow days of living by the coast, loving families and friendships between the children are the real story of TESOROS. Many scenes explore the subtle connections of children with their kin, all different, and the peaceful Mexican lifestyle.

NO RESERVATION REQUIRED FOR THIS PERFORMANCE. SEATING IS FIRST-COME, FIRST-SERVED.
