This virtual screening is eligible for audience awards! The voting period has closed. Stay tuned for the results!

A NOTE TO PARENTS AND OTHER ADULTS: the first ten or twelve films should be fine for everyone. Very young or very sensitive kids might find topics in the last five films disturbing (from shaking belief in Santa to dealing with serious illness). You know your child. Consider whether to pre-screen.

4 to 14 year-olds learned about stop-motion animation, designed and created their own characters and backdrops, and directed their own claymation films!
