Three Nights of Family-Friendly Films Under the Stars at the Delaware Museum of Natural History

 The Delaware Museum of Natural History will host the Brandywine Family Film Festival (BFF) during the evenings of August 17-19, 2012, featuring an exciting collection of short and feature-length film programs. This is the first year for such a festival in the Brandywine Valley.

Each film selection for this family-friendly, outdoor event was crafted with care to appeal to the next generation of movie-lovers. Inspiring, magical works made by acclaimed and up-and-coming filmmakers alike will take you on a celluloid ride around the globe, with films sure to inspire the whole family. All of the films are appropriate for children ages 4 through 12.

BFF is organized and created by Museum member Kimberly Fields-Cauley as a creative, community event specifically designed for families. The goal of BFF is to foster a deep appreciation for local and global art and culture by presenting it in the format children and families love - movies! This three-day event will include animated, live-action, short, and feature-length films for the whole family.

Each evening will include a showing of several short films followed by a feature film.

The festival will take place Friday through Sunday, August 17-19, 2012 on the grounds behind the Museum. Each evening, doors will open at 6:30 p.m. Short films will begin at 7:30 p.m. Feature films will begin at 8:30 p.m. As an added bonus, each ticket provides one-night admission to multiple films and access to the Museum's permanent exhibits, as well as our special exhibit, Earth from Space. Rain dates for the festival are August 18-20, 2012.

Tickets are $10 for adults and $5 for children (12 and under). Tickets can be purchased at the door or online at http://bwfilmfest2012.

Families are encouraged to bring blankets, lawn chairs, and light snacks. Refreshments will also be available on-site.
