Freeze Frame, the Inter­na­tion­al Film Fes­ti­val for Kids of All Ages was cre­at­ed to pro­vide young peo­ple in Man­i­to­ba access to qual­i­ty films and videos from around the world. Freeze Frame selects films and videos
that will enter­tain and chal­lenge chil­dren and youth by explor­ing sit­u­a­tions and issues not nor­mal­ly explored in main­stream media. While most coun­tries pro­duce qual­i­ty movies and tele­vi­sion pro­grams for youth,these pro­duc­tions are rarely seen by the gen­er­al pub­lic. Freeze Frame brings these films and videos to Man­i­to­ba because they are a win­dow into oth­er cul­tures and allow us to explore new or unfa­mil­iar sto­ry­telling and film­mak­ing styles.

The 24th edi­tion of the Freeze Frame Inter­na­tion­al Film Fes­ti­val for Kids of All Ages takes place March 8 – 15, 2020 with films from Brazil, Cana­da, France, Ger­many, Kenya, Latvia, Lux­em­bourg, Poland, The Nether­lands and the USA. All screen­ings will be held at the Cen­tre Cul­turel Fran­co-Man­i­to­bain, 340 Provencher Boulevard.

FREE screen­ings on March 8th and March 15th and a glam­orous red car­pet walk just for kids at the fes­ti­val’s Open­ing Cer­e­mo­ny on March 8th.
