The Akron Art Museum and Akron Film invite parents to bring their young film connoisseurs to the museum on Saturday, May 19, from 12 – 3 pm to enjoy an afternoon of engaging, high-quality family films in the Charles and Jane Lehner Auditorium.
If you need a break from the regular family offerings at your local multiplex, bring the family to the museum’s Spark! Family Film Fest for a variety of fresh features. The event will begin with a collection of cool, zany and funny shorts from the New York International Children’s Film Fest (NYICFF). Spark! will also feature hands-on art activities and short films presented by Akron Film.
Stay for the day or pick and choose which of the following activities work best for you and your little movie-goers.

1:15 pm: Hands-on art activity
3:15 pm: Akron Film presents short films
