“Ewww!” Screams, some of joy, others of disgust, erupted from the audience, reacting to the images on the screen. A cartoon owl just picked up a grasshopper and ate it in front of everyone. Then, the entire audience laughed as a circus flyer announced “The Mouse Who Soar,” a flying rat. Now all that’s left is sniffles and tears as a baby seal is stranded away from its mother. Sixty frames per second conveys all that emotion to an enthralled crowd of children, adults, and a quirky student with a notebook. This is the Chicago International Children’s London film premieres, showing 265 films of various lengths and featuring nearly 100 different filmmakers and actors.

MarkMeets are excited to continue shaping an outstanding Festival for filmmakers, industry, and all ages audiences in 2024.
