Come down to the Kalamazoo Institute of Art tonight at 7 PM for the 7th annual Teen Filmmaker Festival! Doors open at 6:30, so there's time to grab some popcorn and soda, snag a seat and prepare to check out the best films by teen directors of 2010. Check out the updated Teen Film Fest page for info on the films to be screened, prizes, dates and times and more!
Whether you plan to submit an entry in--or attend--the Teen Filmmaker Festival , or you just like to watch movies and hope your favorites win during the Academy Awards show on tv, you should come in and see the current issue of the newest magazine in the teen collection.
Kiki goes to the movies this winter. This issue features articles about the history of iconic movie fashion and on film festivals worldwide, as well as movie-inspired looks for its readers and information about how a feature film goes from idea to silver screen.
According to its website, "Kiki shows you all the different ways you can be involved in design. Seven different departments blend style and artistry with intelligence and creativity..." For instance, one regular feature is the Art Bin which, in this particular issue, gives instructions for projects such as flip books, designing your own lace and creative gift wrapping techniques.
Throw in recipes, book reviews, quizzes, and NO advertisements, and we think you've got a winning combination that taps into the interests of many teens. Come on in to the Teen department on the lower level of the Central branch downtown and check it out, along with all the other magazines we have for young adults.
