TIFF Kids Film Festival

On Saturday, we attended a screening of Reel Rascals at the TIFF Kids Film Festival. Specifically designed for kids between the ages of 3-6 years old, Reel Rascals is an hour long collection of animated shorts. From a lion and a mouse (A Friend Like Me), to some friendly monsters (A Monster Mess), and a comedic cat who tries to plant a candy garden (Joe & Jack: Garden Party), the films were imaginative and playful.

After the screening we explored digiPlaySpace, an interactive, digital learning playground filled with a Funky Forest (a touch sensitive ecosystem), magical green screen, sound painting, 3D drawing centre, and Appcade (filled with learning apps). Take a look at our photos (and digitally enhanced family portrait)!


TIFF Kids Film Festival runs until April 22 and brings over 130 films from 40 countries.
