The Athens International Children’s Film Festival chose a single key word to resound across this season’s Park Your Cinema Kids — Music!
We invite young viewers and their families to sing, dance and move to the beat of joy, adventure and friendship, with a series of all-time favorite films that exalt music in every possible way. From Sing, with the talented animal-singers who follow their dream, to the Lion King remake featuring the much loved “Hakuna Matata,” this year’s range of options offers a fun getaway from the day-to-day, as well as valuable takeaways for all ages, conveyed through melodious stories that promote free expression, understanding and perseverance to achieve any goal.
For who’s to say that the Great Lawn of the Stavros Niarchos Foundation Cultural Center isn’t also a dance floor?
Beauty and the Beast (2017)
The classic tale follows the wonderful journey of Belle, a beautiful and independent young woman who is imprisoned by the Beast in his castle. Despite her initial fears, she eventually befriends the magical things that live in the castle and learns how to look beyond the eerie presence of the Beast, discovering the noble heart of the Prince inside him. The much-loved fairytale and characters return in this live-action adaptation of Disney’s unforgettable animated film of the same name, starring Emma Watson, beloved Hermione from the Harry Potter series. The enchanting soundtrack is scored by genre master Alan Menken.
