3rd.childrens.fest.11x17 Telluride Film Festival’s “Sunday at the Palm” presents 3rd Annual Children’s Film Fest: “Best of the Chicago International Children’s Film Festival.” The celluloid celebration takes place at Telluride’s Palm Theatre on Sunday, May 10, 4 p.m. The  program is FREE and the running time is just over an hour.

The SHOW is a compilation of shorts from the Chicago event, also referred to as the “Cannes for kids.”  Roger Ebert of The Chicago Sun Times described the collection as “one of the greatest movie treasures.”  Titles include CONFECTION (USA, 4 min), DOMO-KUN AND THE EGG (Japan, 5 min), LUKA (Ireland, 3 min), THE MANTIS PARABLE (USA, 8 min), THE MAGIC LION (Canada, 7 min) plus other magical shorts. The films are appropriate for all ages.

The Telluride Film Festival is excited about continuing the tradition of a special program offering something for the little ones at the end of every school year. Last year, the SHOW,  “A Mouse in the House,” featured film shorts about all things mice and screened to a delighted crowd of 200 attendees.  This year, filmgoers are encouraged to wear their party clothes.  Fun surprises for all.

Sunday at the Palm is presented by The Telluride Film Festival, The Telluride Foundation, the Palm Theatre and the Telluride R1 School District.
