The mission of the Coastline Children’s Film Festival is to offer quality, independent films and animation to kids of all ages to Berrien County. Presenting them to families and the community on the big screen creates a shared, theatrical experience. CCFF’s anchor event is a 10-day, annual March film festival presented at locations throughout SW Michigan and NW Indiana. Additional indoor and outdoor screenings throughout the summer and Halloween round out the year.
In addition, CCFF sees educational opportunities as central to its mission. Alongside the screening of features, documentaries, and short programs, festival participants have the opportunity to learn about the history of cinema and the craft of filmmaking through hands-on workshops and filmmaker presentations.
