Trina Oropeza (Imago x las artes) leads a workshop in Kamishibai (or “paper theater”), a Japanese art of storytelling. Children will create their own Kamishibai in cardboard and customize it using different materials such as paint, adhesives, fabrics, and threads, to tell a story inspired by one of the movies from the festival or their own imagination.

Adriana Díaz (Imago's Marimba Music for Kids) leads an age-appropriate group exploration of musical concepts with various instruments like maracas, cymbals, and metallophones as participants get the opportunity to play with rhythms and songs. The session closes with a collective performance.

These workshops are hosted by IMAGO.

The 9th annual Miami Children's Film Festival runs November 17 to November 20. Culturally rich, educational, and entertaining, the Festival includes four days of highly acclaimed international cinema for children and families. It offers a unique opportunity to cultivate critical appreciation for intelligent films among younger people. In addition to the films and hands-on workshops, there will be a free festival street fair taking place on Aragon Avenue on Saturday, November 19, and a closing party on the plaza in front of the cinema with fun activities and music on Sunday, November 20. As a mission-driven nonprofit cinema, we believe that art should be affordable and accessible to everyone and this year, admission to screenings is pay what you can!
