Children’s Film Festival
The Saugatuck Center for the Arts is proud to present its 21st year bringing film into the classroom with the Children’s Film Festival. K-12 students travel around the world through the power of film – learning other cultures, traditions, stories, and spirits.
In 2023, we’ll explore stories about adventurous and brave youth their age, vibrant indigenous and multicultural stories, and moving animal rescue efforts – just to name a few. Students love seeing the journey of unique careers, new skills, and defying odds.
In 2022, we enthusiastically welcomed students back into our theater for film-based field trips to the SCA. 1,268 students visited the SCA in person and 2,674 joined us virtually. We brought new experiences to a total of 3,962 students last year, and we can’t wait to open up a world of possibilities for more students again this year.
