Running now: The KIDflix Film Fest!
From the Museum of Contemporary African Diasporan Arts (MoCADA), KIDflix, debuted in 2000, is the longest-running kids’ film festival in Brooklyn. This interactive program offers kids and their families access to a free, outdoor film screenings.
“The KIDflix Film Fest! aims to showcase African Diasporan films of the highest quality in order to expose children and adults to the art of film, as well as to a variety of complex and engaging stories of African Diasporan people that are sorely lacking in mainstream media.”
Inspired by the theme Up, Up, and Asé, the 2021 season of the festival will runs until Friday, September 17, 2021.
“Asé is the divine force, energy, and power incarnate in the world. The power to make things happen and produce change. Olodumare gives asé to everything, including inanimate objects. Asé is the power behind all things in the universe. It enables people to find balance in life. The orishas are bearers of asé.”

“In addition to film screenings, KIDflix also features live performances, face painting, and whenever possible, post-screening Q&As with the filmmakers. It is important that children not only see people who look like them on the screen, but that they also see and hear from the people behind the cameras.”
