Kids Video Connection Children’s Film Festival promotes positive, educational, and entertaining programs for children and teens. This festival is two weeks of exciting and educational activities which include film screenings and video production workshops. Since we started the festival, it has been a great success! KVC was awarded DeKalb County Arts Visionary Award for starting the festival and creating innovative art programs to teach youth.
Opening Day Celebration: Kids Video Connection Children's Film Festival kicks-off on Thursday, June 7th, 10:30 a.m. - 12 noon at the Tucker-Reid H. Cofer Library.
