On Saturday and Sunday, LACMA presents the 12th annual Los Angeles International Children’s Film Festival—free and open to the public! Presenting nearly 100 films from around the world—full-length and short animation, live action, and documentary films—the festival is organized for different age groups, from toddlers through teenagers. Filmmakers and actors are present for Q&A sessions after select screenings. 

Teaching artist Eszter Delgado and LACMA Local members will gather around LACMA after hours on Saturday night for Local: Still. Each Local will be asked to bring an item from home, which will be assigned to a table and arranged into a still life with other objects. Once Locals find their item on its table, they will sit with other Locals and draw the unique scene and share the personal stories behind the objects.

Member Shopping Days are happening all weekend. Members save an additional 10% (up to 20% total!) on select items in the LACMA Store and online, as well as on a limited selection of items in the Art Catalogues bookstore. Bring home your LACMA experience by picking up an exhibition catalogue, books, posters, and more! Not a member? Join today!
