BAMkids Film Festival 2013

BAM (Brooklyn Academy of Music) was the place to be this weekend, with the BAMkids Film Festival. Our schedule didn't allow us to attend the live musical performances by the Deedle Deedle Dees or Suzi Shelton, so I'm jealous of the folks who saw the bands perform at BAMcafé.

We did squeeze in a viewing of one set of short films for kids. It was an awesome hour of 14 short films. Shorts are definitely getting so much attention and acclaim lately. We voted on our favorites for the BAMmies Awards. LC liked all of the shorts.

LC was thrilled that BAM gave out activity books. She enjoyed pretending she was creating her own animation:
