KidFilm is the oldest and largest-attended children’s film festival in the United States, featuring an entertaining, educational, and diverse line-up of new and classic films for both children and adults. KidFilm is an annual outreach program of the USA Film Festival/Dallas, a 501c3 nonprofit organization dedicated to the recognition and promotion of excellence in the film and video arts.

This year, the Festival pays tribute to favorite children's book authors and illustrators, celebrates diversity and tolerance, classic tales and films, magical journeys, and salutes environmental awareness with a program featuring live-action and animation, short films and feature-length works in a program for audiences of any age.

Among the highlights of the festival will be a salute to author and illustrator Tom Lichtenheld, known for his book Groovy Joe: Ice Cream & Dinosaurs; a salute to author Anna Kang and illustrator Christopher Weyant, including a reading of their new book, Can I Tell You a Secret?; a salute to author Beth Ferry, known for her book, Stick and Stone, and her new book, Land Shark.

There will also be screenings of new and classic animated and live-action feature films from the United States, Russia, German, and Canada. For a full schedule of events, go to the USA Film Festival website.
