EVENTS / FESTIVALS: Asheville International Children’s Film Festival expands children’s views (USA)

Instead of dropping children off at the movie theater or allowing them to entertain themselves on the Internet, parents can take their children to see diverse films at the largest children's film festival in the Southeast, the Asheville International Children's Film Festival from Nov. 1 to Nov. 14. 

"Some of these movies are so inspiring, it's just incredible," said Jon Menick, one of the filmmakers involved in the festival. "When parents take their kids to see these, they get a wide variety of positive thrills instead of the opposite."

According to Menick, the films featured during AICFF come from locations all over the world and each one conveys a strong, positive message.
