Summer of Funner Film Festival 2013: Dystopian and Urban Films

summeroffunnerfilmfestival2013
Last year, we had quite a formal Summer Film festival. We made tickets and produced a “Film Review” worksheet for the kids.  This year, our Film Festival was fairly casual, but we still managed to produce quite a dialogue about each movie. There was a nice mix between new, popular releases and older classics. Many of the movies tied in with our Summer Books theme, which was loosely “Dystopian” and with our desire to explore the city and others like it, ergo the “Urban.”
