Sorry for the late notice on this - please share with Bay Area folks who might be interested!
On Wednesday, October 13, Kids TV: Around the World in a Day returns to the Bay Area with an all-new lineup of delightful, intriguing, mystifying and enlightening programs from PRIX JEUNESSE 2010 – the premier international children’s television competition.
Don’t miss your chance to watch and discuss children’s TV from more than a dozen countries. The day includes Cuban sex education, Iranian folk-art animation, a Danish puppet “Carmen,” a South African girl transforming her community with her artwork while teaching her father how to be a dad, a child’s dream animation from Palestine, a preschool newscast from the U.K., a caffeinated Japanese wake-up show, and the controversial video blog of a very angry Dutch teen.
“Around the World in a Day” will be held at the Benson Memorial Center at Santa Clara University. Registration will open at 8:45, with the screening to begin at 9:30. Lunch will be provided and the program will end at 4:30.
This event is intended for professionals, educators and students working with children and media. There is no fee, but advance registration will be required and space limited.
Directions and parking information will be sent once you register.
To register, or if you have questions, send e-mail with your name, title and organization (if any), and e-mail address to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please feel free to share this information with others.
