The Walker’s Kids’ Film Fair is back and better than ever! This annual collection of international, irreverent, and surprising short films for all ages will be presented both in person on Saturday, March 4, and online all weekend long.
In addition to screenings in the Walker Cinema, the in-person experience features movie-inspired art activities, free gallery admission, and a selection of additional short films screening on loop from 10 am to 3 pm in the Bentson Mediatheque.

Free admission 10 am–5 pm; activities 10 am–3 pm.

Gallery admission tickets are available on-site on the event day from the Main Lobby desk; quantities are limited.
In-person programming will be documented with photography.
