The Providence Children’s Film Festival(PCFF) is a non-profit organization dedicated to bringing high quality independent and international films to New England and presenting them as shared theatrical experiences for the community. PCFF was founded in 2009 with the idea that children, teens and families deserve alternative choices to those found at the traditionally commercial film venues. Education is vital to the PCFF mission. In addition to film screenings PCFF sponsors opportunities for children and youth to learn about film and filmmaking techniques through educational workshops held during the festival and at various other times during the year.
