November 05, 2014

Interested in learning more about social media? Are your kids interested in video editing, social media and digital communications? Or maybe they need a little practice with face-to-face communication? Head to the Boston International Kids Film Festival this weekend for workshops on these and more topics- all sponsored by the British International School of Boston!

According to the event website, the Boston International Kids Film Festival is a three-day destival of films for, about and by kids, along with workshops and various other mentoring opportunities. The festival will be held November 7-9 at the Somerville Theatre and Tufts University.

Geared toward teens and their families, the BIKFF is presented by Filmmakers Collaborative, which encourages and supports the making of films and media projects by people of all ages.

The British International School of Boston is sponsoring the film festival's workshops this year, in hopes of connecting our students and other young people around the city and greater Boston with guidance on their use of social media and digital technology.

Attend the film festival and check out these great workshops we're sponsoring:
