INDIE FAMILY FILMS

Posted by Jean Jessup on Friday, April 15, 2011, In : Shorts 
INDIE FAMILY FILMS - 4/9/11  Families with their kids were in attendance.  Mia Schnaible gave a great intro appropriate for kids.  She included that it was OK for family members to read subtitles to kids who can't read yet.  It made for a nice relaxed, organic viewing experience.
