Quality Children's Entertainment Family Movie Reviews


KF_FilmCritics_218x225.jpgHave you dreamed about becoming the next E! reporter?

If your tween-aged child has a hankering to be the next Roger Ebert, there’s a camp for that. KIDS FIRST! will offer its 2nd Film Critics Boot Camp this summer in four cities across the country – Los Angeles, Albuquerque, Annapolis and Santa Fe – this June and July. Classes are limited to 25 children and cost $549. (Early registration is $479.) Some partial scholarships are available.

Creating the KIDS FIRST! Film Critics Boot Camp is a natural next step for our 20-year-old organization, in teaching young people how to judge and critic media and how to perform on-camera. Kids ages 8 to 13 will get a chance to watch the latest films, meet actual film critics, learn interview techniques and develop performance skills under the tutelage of seasoned professionals. The goal is to help tweens build self confidence while they develop skills that will stay with them a lifetime.

Those seasoned professionals include 1st assistant director Janet Davidson and a host of others (full bios are available on the website).
