(Atlanta, GA) - Kids Video Connection, Inc. will present the 17th annual Atlanta Children's Film Festival (ACFF) from June 7 - 23, 2024. The ACFF features two and a half weeks of eye-opening and exciting activities, including film screenings and workshops for children, teens, and industry professionals. Showcasing films produced by youth and adult independent filmmakers from around the world, the festival promotes positive, educational, and entertaining children and family-oriented independent programs.

As the film industry continues to grow in Georgia, educational opportunities like this festival are key to training the next generation of filmmakers.

"The ACFF programming aims to expand children's imaginations, teach media literacy, guide youth in creating their own positive media content, and introduce youth to careers in film & media," says Alesia Johnson, ACFF director. "I'm excited that our simple idea to show positive films that would encourage and inspire youth has grown over the years." She added, "I'm excited to see ACFF expanding opportunities for a diversity of children and youth to learn to tell their own unique stories in our workshops and Intro to Filmmaking Camp. And it's great to see young people begin to consider pursuing careers in the film, TV and digital entertainment industries."

Highlights:

• This year, we're thrilled to announce the return of in-person workshops and our Intro to Filmmaking Camp. Departing from the hybrid format of previous years due to Covid, this year's camp will be conducted in partnership with JOY TV, a new local TV station. Students will have the opportunity to attend classes in-studio and collaborate with professional film crews on their projects.

Nathan, aspiring to be a producer and animator, was inspired by this film.
