idsBestFest, Northampton’s FREE annual children’s film festival, takes place during the February public school vacation week. The films featured from Monday thru Thursday include classics and international short films as well as extraordinary films that have not been screened at chain theaters. The week culminates on Friday with YouthFilm, an afternoon of short films written, produced, and starring local youth, ages 5-18. At the beginning of their movie careers, these aspiring filmmakers get to see their work on the big screen at the beloved Academy of Music Theatre.
