This November, we’re pleased to present a weekend-long showcase of classic and new cinematic works that speak to the experiences and curiosity of young people. My First Film Fest is the Film Society’s home for the next generation of movie lovers, nurturing the sense of discovery, excitement, and education of the film festival experience while shining a light on the indelible significance of the moving image. This year’s slate includes premieres of outstanding recent offerings from around the world alongside repertory classics that exemplify turning points in film history. Featuring free educational screenings as well as in-cinema discussions and introductions, this is an opportunity for children, teenagers, and young adults alike to actively engage with our growing film culture.
