Cultural Connections: Providence Children’s Film Festival

10:00 AM - 11:30 AM

The Providence Children's Film Festival's Director of Programming, Eric Bilodeau, joins us to show you international animated films that might inspire you to make one yourself. You'll never look at sand, typewriter fonts or thumbtacks the same way again! Come animate your very own stop motion film using simple technology and materials you can find at home. Join us the first Saturday of every month to meet an actor, musician, dancer, maker or painter.

Maker Space Weekend: Moving Pictures from A-Z

Noon - 3:00 PM

From animation to zoetrope, we are exploring movie making this weekend. Be amazed at how your eyes can be tricked by a flipbook or a thaumatrope, and become a sophisticated stop motion movie maker. Contribute a few scenes to a crowd-sourced story board.
