SOLD OUT – Circle Round At Belmont World Film’s 15th Annual Family Festival

This event is sold out. Click here to view entire festival line-up.

Join us for a live performance of Circle Round, WBUR’s storytelling podcast for kids and the young at heart, featuring folktales from around the world with an eye toward inclusiveness, as well as notable voices from stage and screen.

Stories include “It Could Always Get Worse,” a classic Yiddish folktale about a flock of animals that move in to an extended family’s one-bedroom farmhouse, and “Stella and the Dragon,” a Romanian folktale about a clever mother and her quest to outwit a powerful dragon.

Belmont World Film’s 15th Annual Family Festival, “Where Books Come Alive,” offers nearly four full days of some of the world’s best films for children and adults. Films are screened in English or their native language with subtitles, some of which will be read aloud via headphones, and many are being screened internationally or in North America for the first time. It might even be your only time to see them in New England. There are films about spies in the Netherlands, reindeer herding in Sweden, wild horses in Spain, brave boats in Norway, children overcoming disabilities in Colombia and a benefit screening about brave and amazing child refugees from all over the world – not to mention a tribute to Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and a whole program of films based on books by Mo Willems!
