MISSION STATEMENT

The mission of the Coastline Children’s Film Festival is to bring quality, independent films and animation for children & young adults to Berrien County and present them on the big screen as shared theatrical experiences for families and the community. CCFF’s anchor event is a 10-day, annual March film festival presented at locations throughout SW Michigan and NW Indiana.

 

In addition, CCFF sees educational opportunities as central to its mission so, alongside the screening of features, shorts and documentaries, festival participants have the opportunity to learn about the history of the medium, as well as the craft of filmmaking, through hands-on workshops and filmmaker presentations. 

Watch for single-film events throughout the year.​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​
