Attention Film Buffs! – Sprockets Film Festival

What: Sprockets Toronto International Film Festival for Children and Youth
When: April 5th-17th
Where: TIFF Bell Lightbox, Toronto

The Sprockets Toronto International Film Festival for Children and Youth is at the TIFF Bell Lightbox. Sprockets features a handful of awesome films for young people from Canada and around the world. With short and feature films, live action and animations, and comedies, dramas and everything in between, Sprockets has something for everyone. Browse the program and take your pick.

We all love a good mystery! Join a batch of young detectives in The Crocodiles Strike Back (Germany) and uncover the clues behind a local factory’s mysterious closure.

If animation’s your thing, Loot Bag is a great choice. Loot Bag is a series of animated short films and you can expect it all: 2D, 3D and stop motion.

How about a combination of live action and animation? In Adventures of Owen (Canada), young Owen escapes the stress of everyday life into an animated world of his own creation.

If you’re interested in filmmaking, Jump Cuts is the place to be. Jump Cuts is a selection of short films by young people for young people, so go check out the creative ‘haps of fellow youth. There are three Jump Cuts events: Grades 3-6, 7-9 and 10-12.

And Sprockets offers more than movies: on the weekends of April 9-10th and April 16th-17th, there’s also a bunch of hands-on activities onsite. So grab some extra popcorn and make a day of it.
