The Big Screen for Little People
Win a family-four pack of tickets to Sunday’s screenings at the REDCAT International Children’s Film Festival

redcat-entranceThis weekend the city is abuzz with the Academy Awards. Whether or not your L.A. Kid has decided that she’s ready for her close-up, take her to a place where the big screen is tailored specifically for little people. This Saturday and Sunday are the last two days of the REDCAT International Children’s Film Festival at the Roy and Edna Disney/CalArts Theatre at Walt Disney Hall at 631 West 2nd Street, Los Angeles 90012.

We took our L.A. Kid to last Sunday’s screenings sponsored by Nickelodeon, and packed house notwithstanding, she was mesmerized by the big screen and its offerings, particularly Dora and friends and my daughter’s new friends, Team Umizoomi. Several balloons, face paintings, made-to-order character sketches from Nickelodeon artists, goodie bags, Dora, Diego, and Boots photo-ops later, I was convinced it was the most worthy destination at which I had spent a $5 admission fee in a long time.

redcat signL.A. Kid Stuff is pleased to offer a giveaway contest for three family-four pack of tickets to the REDCAT International Children’s Film Festival’s last day and grand finale screenings this Sunday, March 7, 2010. Sunday’s screenings may not have characters or face paintings, but the chance to expose kids to world-class international films created especially for their demographic in a beautiful downtown Los Angeles venue is a must have experience in cultural entertainment and enrichment.

Entitled “Animation Brigade,” nine shorts during this Sunday’s NOON screenings are a salute to AB Studios, a group of Latvian animators whose puppet animation films Rescue Team, Munk and Lemmy, and Animals are full of brave, roguish and mischievous creatures for all ages. These screenings are appropriate for ages 2 and up. L.A. Kid Stuff is giving away a family four-pack of tickets to the noon screenings.

Balloons window“Magic Carpet” screenings at 1:30 p.m. on the same day will feature inventive international animation for kids ages 7 and up, who’ll see the world in a whole new way. L.A. Kid Stuff is giving away a family four-pack of tickets to the 1:30 p.m. screenings.

Finally, the environmentally-conscious “Green Screen” screenings at 3 p.m. blend fiction and fact for ages 8 and up to foster awareness and guide kids on how they can make a difference in the health of the planet. What a great way to entertain the tweens and teach them about environmentalism in the process! L.A. Kid Stuff is giving away a family four-pack of tickets to the 3 p.m. screenings.

To qualify for the random ticket giveaway drawing, first become an L.A. Kid Stuff member by signing up for our weekly newsletter then email us at info@lakidstuff.com by 9 a.m. on Friday, March 5, 2010 indicating which screening you want to be considered for (NOON, 1:30 p.m. or 3 p.m.) You may only enter a contest for one screening time, so choose appropriately based on age groups!

Visually-Spectacular Animated Film The Secret of Kells in Town for One Week!

Visually-Spectacular Animated Film
The Secret of Kells in Town for One Week!

Psst! Word on the street is that there’s a cool new animated film that is a likely Oscar contender and you have a chance to win four tickets to see it this Saturday, December 5 at 2 p.m.!

Kells 1The Secret of Kells draws its story from the ancient The Book of Kells and offers fantasy, a magical adventure and visually-spectacular style inspired by Celtic Art and illuminated medieval manuscripts.

The Book of Kells is a beautiful manuscript and Ireland’s most precious medieval artifact. Journey with protagonist 12-year-old Brendan as he fights Vikings and a serpent god to find a crystal that will magically complete this magnificent book. The adventure will take Brendan outside of the abbey where he lives into an enchanted forest where a white faerie wolf/girl will befriend him and help him on his quest. In the process Brendan’s own extraordinary talents will be awakened and his courage fortified.kells 4

Extensive research into Irish fairy tales, legends and historic Irish locales and monuments went into developing the lavishly-detailed and colorful look of the film. And in a time when digital animation is becoming more and more standard, The Secret of Kells relies mostly on classic hand-drawn animation inspired by medieval art.

“Many of the most influential animation artists still insist that there are stories that are best told with traditional animation,” says Director Tomm Moore. “With our influences and kells 5subject matter concerning some of the greatest craftsmen and artists who ever lived we felt strongly that this film is one of those stories.” (Click HERE to see a film clip and the TRAILER)

Be one of the first to see The Secret of Kells at its one-week only Oscar-qualifying run at the AMC Burbank Town Center 8 Theatres starting this Friday. It won’t be back in theatres again until its general release in March 2010!
