Our FAMILY category features three presentations, including a 75th anniversary screening of The Wizard of Oz, with attendees encouraged to dress as their favorite characters. The Horizon Foundation of New Jersey will also be on hand starting at 10:00 am (either on the grounds or inside if poor weather) with face painting and balloon twisting.

This section also screens the winners of MFF’s Kidz Shortz film contest featuring short films by young directors in grades 4-12 and I Am Eleven by filmmaker Genevieve Bailey who traveled the world interviewing 11-year-olds about their opinions on issues both personal and global. The participants span multiple continents, including Kimberly from New Jersey. Years after her original interview, Kimberly (now in college) will attend the screening to discuss the project.
