BOSTON INTERNATIONAL KIDS FILM FESTIVAL Returns November 15- 17

The Boston International Kids Film Festival (BIKFF) returns this weekend with more than 80 films for, by, and about kids.

Both professionally and student-made, this year's selections feature a number of award-winning films including a documentary about Syrian and Iraqi refugees experiencing summer camp for the first time, a call to action from a group of school children in Brooklyn trying to eliminate microplastics polluting our environment, and a look back at the Merrimack Valley Gas Explosion and how families and small businesses are still trying to recover.

The festival will take place at the Capitol Theatre in Arlington, the Somerville Theatre, and Lesley University College of Art and Design on November 15th - 17th. All screenings are open to the public and tickets can be purchased at bikff.org.
