Time Out says
Each year, this incredibly popular festival proves that kids have an appetite for more than the same old Saturday-morning cartoons. For its 20th edition, BAM will present a stimulating lineup of 76 feature films and shorts from creatives in 31 different countries. Whimsical live-action and animated tales starring young protagonists, mythical creatures and more keep youngsters of all ages captivated. Grab tickets early for flicks like We're Going on a Bear Hunt—a UK short based on the classic children's book—and make sure to check out The Jim Henson Foundation’s Puppets on Film, which celebrates innovative puppetry work. Throughout the weekend, families can enjoy face-painting activities, puppet shows, and virtual reality film experiences. Visit the website for the full schedule. Ages 3–11.
