The festival will continue on Nov. 21. Showtimes for films are Saturday, Nov. 20 at 10:30 a.m., 12:30 p.m. and 2:30 p.m., and on Sunday Nov. 21 at 3:00 p.m. All movies will be shown at the Studio Cinema on Trapelo Road. Tickets are $3 for each of the screenings on Saturday and $5 for Sunday.
The screenings on Saturday include selections appropriate for younger children, including animated versions of classic children's books produced by studios in the Boston area. At 2:30, the festival will screen "What A Wonderful World," a collection of international animated short films.
Sunday's screening, intended for children 9 years and older, is "Summer Wars," a futuristic sci-fi animated tale from Japan.
