NEW YORK, 25 October 2021 / PRNewswire-PRWeb / – Planet Classroom is proud to present KIDS FIRST! Film Festival best films created by young filmmakers around the world from the November, 1st to celebrate KIDS FIRST! 30th anniversary.
âThere are so many different elements that go into making a movie,â said KIDS FIRST! Founder, Ranny Levy. âWhen children are involved in the creation or marketing process of a film, they learn valuable life skills, including problem solving, critical thinking, collaboration and pitching. They gain the self-confidence to express an opinion that they can debate with their peers. . “
âAt Planet Classroom, we believe that quality storytelling is the most effective way for young people to share ideas that inspire positive change,â said Cathy Rubin, co-founder of the Planet Classroom network. âNow more than ever, it’s time for young media creators to help us rethink a world in which all people can thrive. We are thrilled to partner with KIDS FIRST! To celebrate amazing stories that focus on some of the most important global issues of the day. “
