Children's Film Festival kicks off tonight

The sixth annual Danville International Children's Film Festival is being held this weekend, May 15-17, with a blend of youth-produced, film-student and professional movies shown throughout the weekend in Danville's Village Theatre, 233 Front St.

Nearly 40 films will be screened at the three-day event, chosen from 120 entries, and the festival will also feature a series of educational seminars for children and parents.

The Film Festival kicks off tonight at 6 p.m. with a welcome reception for Nancy Cartwright, the voice of Bart Simpson and a viewing of "The Simpsons Movie." For a complete schedule of the festival, which runs through the weekend, visit
